Using Tor nodes with the QT wallet

  1. Add the following to your SHIELD.conf in: %appdata%/SHIELD/ (Windows), ~/.SHIELD/ (Linux) or ~/Library/Application Support/SHIELD (Mac):

    onlynet=tor
    connect=2bbcmwbxoicst2h2.onion
    connect=egwk5cpy557dphqm.onion
    connect=catogooot5rsf3li.onion
    connect=6vg6bcexl5tynjqp.onion
    connect=tqbrn4rnwsjol6xw.onion
    connect=avxjazbutru5mufe.onion
    connect=w3z6kpzdtxbphrwy.onion
    connect=cx4ym6mbf6rw7nbd.onion
    connect=oj4k7gr3e6a4zgvc.onion
    connect=w4zigl6cpm3viocu.onion
    connect=pv6wdgmopellnhwq.onion
    connect=7woi5h3mn5t73rc3.onion
    connect=466ll6hop2ihx43f.onion
    connect=m5wkhjmsu6tno7vg.onion
    connect=vlbkobjzqdz4jtav.onion
    connect=va7aht25p4davcp7.onion
    tor=127.0.0.1:9050
    

    Note: Tor may use port 9150 instead (e.g. for the browser bundle). If the above doesn't work, change the port to 9150 and try again.

  2. Remove any addnode= lines to non-Tor (non-"onion") addresses.

  3. Run a Tor client such as the Tor daemon (e.g. tor.exe from the "expert bundle" at https://www.torproject.org/download/download).

Now your wallet's node IP will be hidden at all times through the Tor network.
