Default How to access daemonforums with Dillo browser

Hi,

I use OpenBSD and Firefox is a very slow blundering mess on my machine so I use Dillo for most web access. It starts quickly and doesn't load the machine. There is no javascript, but most of the time I consider that to be positive. Accessing daemonforums.org with Dillo would be fine except I can't stay logged in long enough to do anything. Here's my setup:

Dillo -> Privoxy -> Tor

Dillo is configured to enable cookies for daemonforums:
/home/hanzer/.dillo/cookiesrc
Code:
DEFAULT DENY
daemonforums.org ACCEPT
Privoxy is configured to bypass Tor for daemonforums.org connections:
/etc/privoxy/config
Code:
forward           .daemonforums.org     .
So, I think cookies and IP tracking are enabled. What else does daemonforums need to maintain a session?

If I were you I would experiment with forwarding. Maybe a few new lines will do the job.

Code:
forward           .daemonforums.org     .
forward           *.daemonforums.org     . # I do not know if this is semantically correct
forward           daemonforums.org     .
Keep in mind that privoxy usually do the last matching job, so forwarding to Tor client should be first and then cancelling forwarding to daemonforums by dot ".".

I tested the forwarding syntax by adding a rule:
Code:
forward           .whatismyipaddress.com     .
After the appropriate restarts, accessing that website with Dillo gets a report with my actual IP address. This forwarding syntax seems to be correct. Thanks for the hint but no joy so far.

The problem does seem to be Privoxy related. If Privoxy is bypassed and Dillo connects directly to daemonforums.org then everything is okay.

Privoxy seems to be blocking something. So I guess the original question stands: What else does daemonforums need to maintain a session?

Sorry, I have no idea

You could try to run tcpdump to capture traffic with firefox, and compare that with the tcpdump data when you connect with Dillo.

You can also obtain some information on applied rules on page:
http://config.privoxy.org/show-url-i...emonforums.org

Added: my output for daemonforums.org
match-all.action
Code:
{+change-x-forwarded-for{block} 
+client-header-tagger{image-requests} 
+client-header-tagger{css-requests} 
+filter{refresh-tags} 
+filter{img-reorder} 
+filter{banners-by-size} 
+filter{webbugs} 
+filter{jumping-windows} 
+hide-from-header{block} 
+hide-referrer{conditional-block} 
+session-cookies-only 
+set-image-blocker{pattern} }
user.action
Code:
{+hide-user-agent{Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2598.0 Safari/537.36} }
/
{+limit-cookie-lifetime{30} }
/
{+overwrite-last-modified{block} }
/
{+hide-if-modified-since{block} }
/
{+hide-referrer{forge} }
Final results:
Code:
+change-x-forwarded-for{block} 
+client-header-tagger{image-requests} 
+client-header-tagger{css-requests} 
+filter{refresh-tags} 
+filter{img-reorder} 
+filter{banners-by-size} 
+filter{webbugs} 
+filter{jumping-windows} 
+hide-from-header{block} 
+hide-if-modified-since{block} 
+hide-referrer{forge} 
+hide-user-agent{Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2598.0 Safari/537.36} 
+limit-cookie-lifetime{30} 
+overwrite-last-modified{block} 
+session-cookies-only 
+set-image-blocker{pattern}
I know, I should do better config for privoxy. I am going to do so in future

Are you sure privoxy isn't stripping out either the Cookie header that your browser sends to the server, or the Set-Cookie header that the server sends to your browser?

Because that's all that should be needed...
