proxychains not working


hi peeps!!

i am having troubel chaining proxies.

i get to the point of

[ProxyList]
# add proxy here ...
# meanwile
# defaults set to "tor"
socks4 127.0.0.1 9050
socks5 94.50.6.16 1080

then i open a new terminal and run

proxychains firefox

then all i get is

ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
mainuser@mainuser-VirtualBox:~$

firefox opens but when i google my ip address it is not what it says in the list. sometimes i get something like

ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
[s-chain] ><-127.0.0.1:9050-><-ip.addressort>< timeout

this is so irritating

any help would be greatly appreciated

thank you

drbob

I don't get that sentence... Say it in other words please. What address it shows?
Try to remove or uncomment socks5 line in config file.

If it shows not your IP it means that tor proxychains works. If you want to connect directly through 94.50.6.16 1080 then comment socks4 line,otherwise your firefox goes through socks4. Or check in firefox options whether button "SOCKSv5" selected.
Wait! Did I get you right, you're trying to use tor as http proxy? It won't work. Maybe there is a reason to use tor+privoxy instead and point your firefox on 127.0.0.1:8118?
