Tor Browser – Change Country IP Address

Many companies on the Internet allow to access their services from certain countries only.

If you need to access a website that is blocked from your country – you can use a Tor Browser.

By default, the Tor Browser picks random exit nodes from any country, but it can be configured to use the exit nodes with IP addresses from a particular country only.

Set Country in Tor Browser

To use an exit node from a particular country, find your Tor Browser installation folder and navigate to:

Browser -> TorBrowser -> Data -> Tor

Open the file torrc with a text editor.

Add the following line to make the Tor Browser use exit nodes from specified country only, e.g. from the United States:

ExitNodes {us}

Tor Country Codes: Letters in curly brackets are ISO-3166 country codes.

You can also specify a list of countries whose IP addresses should be used as an exit point:

ExitNodes {kr},{ru},{sy},{cn}

Save modifications and restart the Tor Browser.

The same way you can specify which countries should be used as an entry point or blacklist the nodes located in specified countries.

Use entry nodes with IP addresses from specified countries only:

EntryNodes {country_code},{country_code},...

Never use nodes from these countries, when building a circuit:

ExcludeNodes {country_code},{country_code},...
StrictNodes 1

Never use nodes from these countries when picking an exit (nodes listed in ExcludeNodes are automatically in this list):

ExcludeExitNodes {country_code},{country_code},...
StrictNodes 1

StrictNodes: To really exclude some nodes – you must enable StrictNodes, otherwise the Tor Browser still may use the excluded nodes if it decides that it will be necessary.

  1. Сразу возник вопрос – http://joxi.ru/V2VgPBohxNwy3A. У меня в настройках нет возможности внести код для того, чтобы выдавались только российские ip. Есть какое-то другое решение?

  2. I knew how to set the entry node & exit nodes in torrc file. . However, when I look at the TOR Onion I have :
    – This Browser
    -Australia x.x.x.x
    -Germany x.x.x.x
    -Australia x.x.x.x
    – Internet.
    and then look at http://www.iplocation.net, it shows the IP location located in US, Washington consistently no matter what country domain name(2 letters) I changed. Should it shows IP in town locates in Australia ? Any ideas ?

  3. FOR ME USING THE TOR DEFAULT SETTINGS IS BETTER,WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

    1. yea Tor browser default settings are always better but as admin said some websites like spotify available only in US then we (at least me) must to change the exit node to us, but here is a thing if you bored and want to do some illegal things (!) its better to use the default settings

  4. Does not work at all. Always US and Canada.

  5. It didn’t work for me. I used Tor, inserted “ExitNodes {IL}” and IP location showed my IP address as 62.219.3.47. IP locator showed this address belongs to:
    62.219.3.47 Israel HaMerkaz Petah Tikva
    but when I wanted to see an Israeli site, O am still getting the message “his content is unavailable in your country”

    zalek

  6. Sometimes it seems to work, but not always. I am using “ExitNodes {nl},{be},{lu} StrictNodes 1” in the torrc file.

  7. Don’t forget EntryNodes {country_code}, it works better

  8. I have read several articles in google and watched several videos in youtube regarding this matter. It’s the same tips everywhere but it doesn’t work. Maybe it used to, with older versions of Tor but with the latest it doesn’t. After i edit the torrc file, save and restart the browser is not working. The browser can not connect.
