Services: Advanced Settings
This panel is only available in Extended View. To get to this settings
Config in the main window of JonDo,
choose the entry
Anonymity from the list on the left, and open the tab
The following general settings concerning all services can be made from
Anonymize HTTP header
If this option has been activated, the HTTP header sent by the browser will
be set to default values which equal those of JonDoFox. This renders users of other browsers
less distinguishable from JonDoFox users or those that have also enabled
HTTP filtering. This can improve the protection of privacy but is not
necessary if using JonDoFox.
This function is only available for unencrypted connections to websites
(HTTP). A respective filtering for encrypted connections (HTTPS) can only
be done by JonDoFox.
Confirm every single website when anonymity is switched off
With this box checked and anonymity mode switched off, JonDo will demand
your individual confirmation in order to prevent pages from being loaded
unnoticeably without protection whenever requesting a website domain. If
you uncheck this box, JonDo will allow a direct connection to the web
server in non-anonymous mode without asking for individual confirmation,
but only ask for your confirmation once.
Auto connect after program start
If this box is checked, JonDo automatically connects to the anonymization
service when started.
Auto re-connect after connection to Mix was lost
Check this box if you want JonDo to automatically reconnect to the
anonymization service if the connection has been lost.
Automatically change services
This option randomly selects a service from the cascades set in your service filter if the active service
fails or is unreachable.
Also on JAP/JonDo startup
With this option deactivated JonDo will connect to the same service it has
been connected to before it was last shut down. Otherwise, a random service
will be selected based on the filter
criteria you have set.
Connect to explicitly unlocked services only (whitelist)
If activated, JonDo will only allow connections to services that you have
explicitly verified and allowed before. This ensures optimal protection
from unwillingly connecting to untrusted JonDonym services. On the other
hand, you will not benefit automatically from new available services, but
will have to unlock them one by one in the JonDonym service panel.
Send keep alive packet every
Here you can decide how often zero-content dummy packets should be sent in
order to keep the connection alive when no other packets are currently sent
Login timeout (s)
If your Internet connection is slow, a timeout too short for the login to
services may prevent JonDo from establishing an anonymous connection. A
timeout too high may cause long waiting times when connecting if the
currently chosen service is not available or the connection is blocking for
other reasons. Therefore, increase or lower the timeout just as you need
Restrictions for the Dresden (JAP) anonymisation servers
After careful consideration we have decided to restrict the size of downloads over the Dresden (JAP) mixes a little. The reason is to allow a more fair use of scarce resources of our servers especially for users who simply want to surf the Web. more...
