Keeping yourself anonymous is sometimes your job requirement or for fun. Hackers always find ways to keep their internet traffic completely anonymous and if a hacker is given option to select proxy server of his/her choice than its a cherry on cream.
You all must be aware of TOR, today we will talk about a tool that will help you to select proxy server or TOR exit node of your choice easily. Using this tool, we can connect to any country using country ISO code. According to researcher of International Institute of Cyber Security TorGhostNg blocks all non TOR traffic through Iptables and redirects all the traffic to TOR network.

- Use this command to find help option, sudo torghostng -h
- Now, use this command to start the tor services using the TorHostNg tool, sudo torghostng -s
- Here, we successfully started Tor services.
