Tor: Choose exit node country

If, like myself, you need to choose from which country you get out on the internet using Tor, all what you need to do is to edit your “/etc/tor/torrc” (for Linux) – %appdata%/tor (for Windows) file adding or modifying the following settings:

StrictExitNodes 1
ExitNodes {Country_Code}

You can add comma if you’d like to use more than one exit node:

StrictExitNodes 1
ExitNodes {Country_Code_1},{Country_Code_2}

Or, if you don’t want to get out from a specific country:

StrictExitNodes 1
ExcludeExitNodes {Country_Code_1}

Here is a list of Tor country codes:
