I have bitcoin running on ubuntu, and I have port 8333 forwarded to that computer's NAT'd IP address.  I understand it would be best for me to instruct my Mac OS X machine to connect through the ubuntu machine using "bitcoin -connect=IP ADDRESS" - how exactly do you do that on a Mac, since those instructions appear to be a windows command line switch.

Can I just point to /Applications/Bitcoin.app/Contents/MacOS/bitcoin -connect?  I tried that and it never got a connection.


Thanks
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Easiest way would be to put it in the bitcoin.conf file.

Create $HOME/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf  and put:

connect=IP ADDRESS

... in it.  Any of the command-line options (except -datadir and -conf) can be put in the bitcoin.conf file.
