Intermediate Anonymity

for W95/98/2000


Hello to one and all. I see you are ready for your 2nd dose of anonymity training.
This lesson will include the acquisition of several new programs for your PC. If you will follow these instructions you'll have an arsenal of anonymity to choose from.
For those of you who come directly from Simple Anonymity I just want to say thank you for hanging in there and persevering. If you haven't used the simple scripts for remailing yet I suggest you do so now. You never know when your isp's news server is going to go down. In the 'likely' event of that happening, you'll have your simple anonymity to fall back on and you may post or E-Mail with little inconvenience.

It's time to get your computer ready for Intermediate Anonymity.
Open windows explorer and give a left-click on your C: line and
then click File|New|Folder and name the folder ANON.
Repeat those steps to create the folders: PGP, MIX, TMP and JBN.
Whenever you download an anon program, make the ANON folder the destination.
You'll also need an unzipping program like WinZip 
Let's do some downloading :-))))

PGP 

First, go here:  pgp263i-win32.zip
When asked for a download destination, hit [BROWSE] to C:\ANON
PGP is the cornerstone of anonymity. It scrambles your 'real' messages so well the government once (and probably still does) wanted the originator, Philip R. Zimmermann, thrown into prison after he released the source code.

Mixmaster 

Now, go here:  mix204b45.zip
As usual, make the destination C:\ANON
This program was 1st prepared by Lance Cottrell, a well known anonymity master. This is a program which further scrambles your PGP messages

JBN 

Now, go here:  JBN
Download JBN version (1.36) to your C:\ANON folder like all the others.
JBN 1.36 is a great "old" program but you really should get the new 2.14 version. There are some great help guides that come with the JBN2.1 download@;~)/

All Done?

Lets install these programs



Open your windows explorer and open the ANON folder:
There are all the programs you just downloaded.
Let's start with the foundation of anonymity, PGP.
Double-click on the PGP zip file and when asked where to install the unzipped files, browse to C:\PGP.
Now go to the PGP Folder and open it up.
Inside you'll find some files and folders and another zip file.
Double-click on that and when asked for a place to unzip the files, browse to C:\PGP.
That's it! Don't mess with nothing...that comes later.

Open the ANON folder again and double-click on the MIX204b45 zip file.
when asked for the destination, browse to C:\MIX.

If I were you I'd open my connection to the internet right now.

Go back to the anon folder and double-click the JBN zipped file.
This is a great program with an Install shield for perfect installations.
There is also a really good help file which, if one takes the time to 'really'look,
will answer most questions. Open the JBN folder and double-click on the sunglass icon.
As I recall, you'll come face to face with a window called, 'USER PROFILE'.

It'll look like this




Enter your real e-mail addy, e-mail name, smtp server, pop 3 server & name, & pop 3 password.
Now, this is important, Press the [Active] button in & press 'Update Profile'.

Next comes the 'Global Settings' window.

It'll look like this




Make the workpath C:\TMP if it isn't already.
Hit the 'Remailers' tab; put C:\MIX in the mixpath box.

It'll look like this




In the Cypherpunk Statistics URLs boxes put,

When you're done, press update.

Now go up to the top of your JBN main screen and press Tools|Wizards|Install PGP
and follow the instructions. When you're done press Tools|Wizards|Install Mixmaster
and follow instructions.
Here is a great place to open the help file.
Now go up to the top of your JBN main screen and press Window|Stats Book|Tools|Update Cpunk Keys
Do the same again W|S B|T|Update Mixmaster List & Keys
Check to see you've done the right things and continue down the list of things to do.

Once you begin to interact with pgp keysources, you'll occasionally be asked,
"Do you want to use these keys? y/N " and you'll answer, y (& press enter)
"Do you want to certify these keys? y/N " and you'll answer N (& press enter)
