Configuration: Internet for Applications

If an applications directly supports SOCKS proxies you can pass it the IP of the Tor router directly by whatever means the application supports.

Some, like the Void package manager XBPS support the SOCKS_PROXY environment variable. Others, like Monero, will take the proxy IP as command line argument.

torsocks (for any application)

If an application lacks direct SOCKS support, the torsocks command can usually be used to transparently route that application's traffic through Tor anyway.

Just prepend a command with "torsocks -a 172.18.0.2 -P 9050 --isolate ".

Example: torsocks -a 172.18.0.2 -P 9050 --isolate curl https://check.torproject.org/api/ip
