While the main usage of JonDonym is anonymizing web surfing, there are a lot of other applications that you may use with the program.
In the following, you will see some applications that have successfully been tested with JonDonym. If you are missing the configuration of an email-client or an instant messaging-service please consider reading our help. Due to lot of questions we decided to introduce both the former and the latter there and not within this wiki. If you have your own suggestions, write us: For every submission which is published here, we will send you a JonDonym-couponcode worth of 500 MB for free.
Anonymous server maintenance with WinSCP
WinSCP is a Windows program for the secure data transfer from and to a server. At the menu item "Proxy", just enter the connection data for JonDo (Proxy host name=127.0.0.1, Port number=4001) and choose "Login". You should now see in JonDo that the program transfers encrypted data.
Proxy-compliant applications (HTTP/SOCKS)
In principle you may use JonDo with every Internet application where you can enter an HTTP-proxy in the settings. The default values for enabling the proxy are as follows:
- Hostname/IP address: localhost (or 127.0.0.1)
- Port: 4001
Some premium mix services offer in addition to the HTTP proxy interface a SOCKS proxy interface as well. However, the HTTP interface is preferable over SOCKS if the respective Internet application is supporting it.
Be cautious if you are using the SOCKS interface
Please, if you are using a SOCKS proxy make always sure that the respective application is resolving the DNS name via the SOCKS proxy. Because otherwise information about the servers which you contacted via JonDo will be transmitted to the DNS servers together with your IP address. Should the configuration of your SOCKS application neither be specified in this wiki nor in the help, please check if it is leaking DNS using a personal firewall or tools like Wireshark. If you do not know what to do with these terms it would be better if you were not using SOCKS.
