Subject description: surf anonymously with anonsurf

anonsurf is a script.

To see it in action, use ParrotSec OS, or try using it in your distro with kali-anonsurf, an easy to install script with ./installer.sh. The developer says it should work on any Ubuntu and Debian (and derivatives), but he only has made extensive tests with Kali.

What's inside kali-anonsurf :


Download zip or use git (git clone https://github.com/Und3rf10w/kali-anonsurf.git).

In folder, run installer : ./installer.sh.

If all is fine, as root : anonsurf status and/or anonsurf myip Results from both commands are telling you the script works as intended. But refrain from using anonsurf start, change, stop, restart, etc. As a result, connectivity will be lost, and you will have to refill resolv.conf with nameservers (, if needed). ParrotSec OS is fully compatible with such commands, but not other commonly used Ubuntu/Debian OS (from what i know as of now).

In etc/tor/torrc, after installing the script, you should see :

AutomapHostsOnResolve 1
TransPort 9040
SocksPort 9050
DNSPort 53
RunAsDaemon 1

If you end up with an unresponsive system, due to the obliteration of nameservers in resolv.conf, you can add in resolv.conf file :
#PIA VPN nameservers
and in terminal tell your network manager to restart :
service network-manager restart

you can remove the script if results are not to your liking :
#apt remove --purge kali-anonsurf
i2p can be removed too, if you want.
#apt autoremove to have a clean slate.
And reboot.

Resolv.conf is not to be empty. If you lost connectivity, it is most probably because nameservers were obliterated (trying anonsurf start against advice for example).

kali-anonsurf has been extensively tested on Kali. So you have absolutely no garantee it will work on your own system, even though developer says it should work on Debian and Ubuntu (and derivatives).

For a no-risk try, use ParrotSec OS and see by yourself the power of anonsurf.

For some, is it easier to follow a YouTube how-to :

My take on kali-anonsurf :
The script works out-of-the box, so you should not use anonsurf start, stop, change, etc, because such commands will break your connexion. resolv.conf is the file to check if connectivity is lost. Try manually adding nameservers to establish connectivity again, as a worst case scenario.

What to expect from anonsurf status command :
#anonsurf status
● tor.service - Anonymizing overlay network for TCP (multi-instance-master)
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/tor.service; enabled; vendor preset: enab
Active: active (exited) since Mon 2018-03-26 16:18:01 EDT; 7min ago

And from anonsurf myip :
#anonsurf myip
My ip is:

Changing proxy settings in Firefox can help, from default Use system proxy settings to Auto-detect proxy settings for this network.

Changes made to the script by Dog and Puppy developers could potentially help users if they want to start, stop, change or restart the script to go from darknet to clearnet and vice versa.
