Merging with the Proxy routing with Tor and Privoxy article

Agreed. The other one seems to be slightly better-written, and its title reflects the content better. --Veox 05:00, 11 May 2009 (EDT)

I am with Veox on this as well. --Japetto 23:52, 8 January 2010 (EST)

I dissagree. As many are using Polipo instead of Privoxy, for a variety of reasons. One primary reason being that Polipo makes using Tor seem to be a faster experience. --handy 17:09, 30 August 2010 (EST)

why don't we merge the "proxy routing with tor and privoxy" to here instead? we can have subsections for polipo and privoxy (or any other http proxy with socks support that people want to use) Thestinger 04:12, 30 August 2010 (EDT)
Since this discussion has clearly been abandoned and no change has been made in over two years, I'm going to follow through on Thestinger's suggestion. ~ Filam 10:51, 2 July 2011 (EDT)
I'm going to create separate Polipo and Privoxy articles. I had the idea previously, but wanted to take some time to look through and edit the Tor article first. In its current state the Tor article is way too long. I'll finished dividing the Polipo and Tor content this article before creating a Polipo article which links to a HTTP Proxy section here. Then I'll move Proxy routing with Tor and Privoxy to Privoxy and link it to Tor. ~ Filam 11:49, 2 July 2011 (EDT)

File descriptor ulimit

What is a file descriptor ulimit? As far as I understand it, it is a file size limit on the files current open (i.e. in memory) as monitored by the Kernel. But the Tor configuration file states that it is a "custom ulimit for the maximum number of open files"? Is this a correct use of the term ulimit? ~ Filam 09:30, 30 January 2012 (EST)

And more importantly, why would you want to set a limit on the maximum number of files open by Tor? Does Tor tend to open a unusually high number of files? ~ Filam 09:33, 30 January 2012 (EST)

Broken Link

The polipo configuration file link is broken. Gitweb returns a 404 on the file. -yungtrizzle
