Package Managers

There are several ways to retrieve OnionCat. The easiest way to install it is to use the package manager of your operating system. OnionCat is known to be included at least in Debian Linux, ArchLinux, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFly BSD, and probably others which are not explicitly known.

Source Packages

The method which should work on nearly all systems is to download the source package from the primary location https://www.cypherpunk.at/ocat/download/Source/current/ and compile and install it manually. Since OnionCat was developed with portability in mind this works on Linux, Windows with Cygwin, Mac OSX, and Solaris. Currently there is no report of any system where it does not work. Please do not hesitate to contact us for bug reports or feature requests.

The build chain is based on the GNU Autotools, hence, simple do

./configure
make
make install

SVN Checkout

OnionCat may also be checked out from our svn repository. To build it in this case you need to have autotools installed. To check out the latest revision do

svn checkout https://www.cypherpunk.at/svn/onioncat/trunk onioncat

You can also browse the source in our Trac source code browser at https://www.cypherpunk.at/onioncat_trac/browser.
