I've hosted a wifi network using a virtual router, with which the local area connection is sharing it's internet with. My Android device can connect to this wifi network and can access my laptop's internet.
Now comes in Tor. On my laptop, Tor can be accessed on 127.0.0.1 via a Socks5 protocol. I'm trying to connect to this network from my Android device. I figured that all I need to do is acccess my laptops localhost from my device. Since my phone is connected to the laptop's wifi network, I should be able to access localhost by using my laptop's ip address (192.168.xx.x). Unfortunately this does not work. Any idea why?
Is there a better way I can access the Tor running on my laptop from my device via Wifi or USB tethering?
Windows 7 (Ubuntu 12.04 is available if a solution demands it), rooted Android on CM9.
Orbot is not an option since it's unable to connect via the wifi's proxy.
