#37666 closed defect (fixed)

torsocks is not a replacement for tsocks

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

torsocks may claim to be a replacement for tsocks, but it is not. torsocks is a socks proxy over tor. For use over a normal SOCKS proxy, torsocks appears not to work. [also see #36808] Is there some reason we can't keep both tsocks and torsocks in macports?

At the time that I marked tsocks replaced_by torsocks I thought they were equivalent software. Since it has now turned out that they are not, we should revert that.
