Foxyproxy+tor (Not working)


Hi,

I downloaded foxyproxy and got tor through: # yum install tor tor-lsb tor-core privoxy
The moment I did that I could fly everywhere. But when I closed the firefox, I lost this privilege.

Why is it not working any more?

Couple of things to do:
- check if Privoxy and TOR are still running ('sudo pgrep privoxy tor'),
- check if your proxy settings match that of your Privoxy (or just point your browser to "http://p.p"),
- check the Privoxy and TOR log files for clues.
BTW[0] if you like a GUI for checking things see Vidalia.
BTW[1] unless you have a distinct use for Privoxy (filtering) or Polipo (caching) you don't really need to run a conduit anymore.

Thanks for your reply.
I really don't have any intention to use conduit. Just because there are restrictions where I live, I sometimes need it.

I checked the "sudo pgrep privoxy tor": I got the following result:

Usage: pgrep [-flvx] [-d DELIM] [-n|-o] [-P PPIDLIST] [-g PGRPLIST] [-s SIDLIST]
[-u EUIDLIST] [-U UIDLIST] [-G GIDLIST] [-t TERMLIST] [PATTERN]

I could not open "http://p.p", I could not find any clues in the log file.

Probably set with too low logging level.
First check if processes are alive: 'sudo pgrep -l privoxy; sudo pgrep -l tor'. If not then restart them
Then check the default Privoxy address: 'sudo grep ^listen /etc/privoxy/config'.
Then enter in the location bar: "about:config" (w/o quotes, enter) then "network.proxy.h" in the search field and check the address and port match that of Privoxy.
Then point your browser to https://check.torproject.org/ which will tell you if you use TOR. Note checking the latter only makes sense if you know Privoxy and TOR are running and if your browser is configured to use the proxy.
