This little how-to is more of a way to pass socks proxy parameters to a java app, however my focus here is on doing this with the Java game Minecraft over the TOR Network.
Why you ask? Because I wanted to know if it was possible and if I could do it.
- Minecraft Account
- Java Installed (Latest Version)
- Minecraft installed and up to the current date.
- Windows OS – I’m using Windows 8 at this time
Open notepad and add the following values into it:
cd C:Program Files (x86)Javajre7bin
java -DsocksProxyHost=127.0.0.1 -DsocksProxyPort=9050 –Xmx1024m -jar Minecraft.exe
The above will work with any SOCKS proxy and not limited to TOR. I am using the above as these are the defaults to TOR
Save the file at TOR-Minecraft.bat and run it. If all work as planned you will see the console open followed by the Minecraft UI. You can now connect to any remote server and you should be passing all your data through the TOR network.
