Title : Tor part 6: onionshare for sharing files anonymously Author: Solène Date : 21 November 2018 Tags : tor unix network openbsd68 If for some reasons you need to share a file anonymously, this can be done through Tor using the port net/onionshare. Onionshare will start a web server displaying an unique page with a list of shared files and a *Download Files* button leading to a zip file. While waiting for a download, onionshare will display HTTP logs. By default, onionshare will exit upon successful download of the files but this can be changed with the flag --stay-open. Its usage is very simple, execute **onionshare** with the list of files to share, as you can see in the following example: solene@computer ~ $ onionshare Epictetus-The_Enchiridion.txt Onionshare 1.3 | https://onionshare.org/ Connecting to the Tor network: 100% - Done Configuring onion service on port 17616. Starting ephemeral Tor onion service and awaiting publication Settings saved to /home/solene/.config/onionshare/onionshare.json Preparing files to share. * Running on http://127.0.0.1:17616/ (Press CTRL+C to quit) Give this address to the person you're sending the file to: http://3ngjewzijwb4znjf.onion/hybrid-marbled Press Ctrl-C to stop server Now, I need to give the address `http://3ngjewzijwb4znjf.onion/hybrid-marbled` to the receiver who will need a web browser with Tor to download it.
