How to hide your IP address in rhel 6.X / Centos 6.X

Tor doesn't work as root user so login as a user and extract the tar file and keep it in any directory say /home/ranjith/Downloads

[ranjith@vellore Downloads]$ cd tor-browser_en-US/
[ranjith@vellore tor-browser_en-US]$ ls
App Data Docs Lib start-tor-browser tmp

[ranjith@vellore tor-browser_en-US]$ ./start-tor-browser

Launching Tor Browser Bundle for Linux in /home/ranjith/Downloads/tor-browser_en-US
Qt: Session management error: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

If your network uses proxy and password click settings > Network and enter your proxy details stop tor and start tor. Now you can connect to internet safely by masking your IP address. Enjoy browsing.
