#18 nethogs and openvpn

v1.0 (example)


I noticed that if I use the Tor Browser Bundle in Linux and then open an IRC client, routed through the Tor network using the Proxy, only Tor shows up as;


The client will not show up listed under 'Programs'

Also I use the Usenet client SABnzbd and when it's running this is what shows up under 'Programs'; /usr/bin/python

Also when I'm using the Tor browser bundle IP addresses start appearing under 'Programs' and I thought NetHogs is only suppose to list a program running not IP addresses?

So I'll get stuff like this below spitting out into the screen;

? root 0.000 0.000 KB/sec
? root 0.000 0.000 KB/sec
? root 0.000 0.000 KB/sec

    SORRY the IP addresses appear when I'm using OpenVPN not Tor...

    I run nethogs like this;

    nethogs tun0

    Well since this is OpenVPN and it's a program, isn't it just suppose to say the name and not the addresses?

    SABnzbd showing up as /usr/bin/python is a seperate issue, please create a seperate report for that if you want to.

    About running nethogs in the presence of openvpn/tor: it might be the vpn does some translation work that makes the sniffed data not correspond directly to the data found in /proc/net/tcp.

    Can you:
    1) open a 'stable' connection (i think a tcp irc session should be fine)
    2) paste the result of '/sbin/ifconfig'
    3) paste the nethogs output and the exact command you used
    4) paste the contents of /proc/net/tcp

    Thanks for the reply, sorry I'm not running nethogs at the moment, not sure if I'll be using it anymore...
