So I have Tor, though I don't use it often.  I am wondering how I can strap Armory/Bitcoin to use Tor.
Is there any instruction out there for this that is straight forward?

Would really appreciate assistance!

Open Bitcoin Core and configure Network Settings to connect through Tor. Here are settings if you use Tor Browser to connect to Tor.



You will then have to start Tor Browser and leave it running for Bitcoin Core to connect. Use port 9050 if using Tor daemon instead of Tor Browser bundle.

How do you test that it's working?

Start Tor daemon or Tor Browser then start Bitcoin Core. Green check mark lower right will confirm you are connected over Tor. Then exit Tor or Tor Browser and you will see Bitcoin core also disconnect.

It won't work at all if you set the proxy IP or the port wrong.To really convince yourself though, open the console mode (in the help menu on Bitcoin Core I think) and you'll get a breakout window with a tab showing you the IP's of the nodes you're connecting to. The right half of the nodes tab should show further details for each node. In the further details, you'll see the node IP and the forwarding IP that each node uses. If all the forwarding IP's are the same, you're either not on Tor or really unlucky/lucky. If all the forwarding IP's are different (or all but 1 or 2), and/or you see hidden service IP's (e.g. fhgsnegahskfgwd.onion), you're using Tor.

Also, there's a setting in Armory to route all traffic (i.e. not only the traffic going between Bitcoin Core and Armory) over Tor. I would use that option (in Armory settings).
