(This is part of the solution for Issue #12, running TorChat pidgin
plugin under TAILS.)

It uses two configuration options:

"StandaloneTor" : 1,
"HiddenServiceName" : "the-hidden-service-name"

(The hidden service name is the content of the hostname file for the
hidden service without the .onion extension)

The tor instance has to include the following entries:

HiddenServiceDir /path/to/hidden-service-folder/
HiddenServicePort 11009 127.0.0.1:11009
LongLivedPorts 11009
SocksListenAddress 127.0.0.1:11109

What is missing: being able to specify the ports for the hidden service
and socks ports in the UI and maybe some script to create the hidden
service first time it is being run.

I tested this running under pidgin 2.10.6-2, tor 0.2.3.25-1 and torchat
0.9.9.550-2.

looks ok at first sight (sorry for long delay). I have not forgotten your pull request, I am just busy with the android port (and other things also) at the moment. I will come back to it, I promise :-)

Will this patch also work, if Tor is running on separate machine in the local network?

Hi!

No, it won't.
I didn't feel comfortable adding more entries to the configuration file without discussing it with you.
If you accept this patch, I can send you a second one allowing for a remote Tor process.
