This question is asking how to find the Torrc for MacOS X and how to change the Torrc fille to only have exit nodes from a specific country.

However, there are answers for both parts of this question. A duplicate of the first part asking about how to find the Torrc for MacOS X can be found here. A duplicate of exiting from a specific country can be found here.

So basically, this question has duplicates for both parts. So should it be closed as a duplicate or not? Also, is there a way to classify this question as a duplicate of both those questions?

  • I can answer this part, at least: "Also, is there a way to classify this question as a duplicate of both those questions?" – Yes, there is. Users who have a gold badge in one of the tags on the question (as well as site mods) can close the question as a duplicate singlehandedly; they can also edit the duplicates list on such a question to add links to other questions as well, and/or reorder the list of duplicates.

In my opinion the question needs a good answer on how to find the torrc in a macOS system. Currently the answer deals with Vidalia. This is not helpful for people, because Vidalia is not distributed anymore.

So if the question had a good general answer, I'd propose to close the other question as duplicate and so point it to the first question.

The question about exiting from a certain country is more a general question which only in part has something to do with macOS. So I would not touch it at the moment.

    Thanks for the input! After rethinking this, perhaps we don't have to do anything really because both of the answers to tor.stackexchange.com/questions/9392 seems somewhat old so until a new answer comes, I don't think we should close the other question. So right now, I don't think anything has to be done really, but we should wait until a better answer appears.
