Installing Tor Service

sudo apt-get install tor
sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc

Add the following just below the first set of comments:

Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
AutomapHostsSuffixes .onion,.exit
AutomapHostsOnResolve 1
TransPort 9040
DNSPort 53

Configure iptables

sudo iptables -F && sudo iptables -t nat -F
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p udp --dport 53 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 53
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p tcp --syn -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9040

Check iptables routes:

sudo iptables -t nat -L

if all routs looks like about run this command:

sudo sh -c "iptables-save > /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat"

Create log file

sudo touch /var/log/tor/notices.log
sudo chown debian-tor /var/log/tor/notices.log && sudo chmod 644 /var/log/tor/notices.log

Testing and finishes

Start TOR service:

sudo service tor start

Check to see if the service is running:

sudo service tor status

Run TOR Service at Boot:

sudo update-rc.d tor enable
sudo reboot

Test for TOR service is running after reboot, connect to the TOR WIFI.

Optional: Install Monit Service to reload Tor Serivce if Down

sudo apt-get install monit
sudo nano /etc/monit/monitrc

Add those lines to the end of the config:

check process gdm with pidfile /var/run/tor/
   start program = "/etc/init.d/tor start"
   stop program = "/etc/init.d/tor stop"

Reload and add Monit to startup:

sudo monit reload
sudo update-rc.d monit enable
