Privoxy and tor
 
I have installed both packages and each works ok on its own. My problem arises when i append the privoxy config file with:

forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .

I get nothing but a 503 error from privoxy. Here is the last entry in privoxy's logfile:
Oct 01 21:16:30 Privoxy(-1219277904) Request: www.google.co.nz/
Oct 01 21:16:30 Privoxy(-1208788048) Request: config.privoxy.org/send-stylesheet cgi call
Oct 01 21:16:30 Privoxy(-1208788048) Request: config.privoxy.org/send-stylesheet crunch!

Here is the last entry in tor.log:
Oct 01 21:16:08.033 [notice] Tor 0.1.0.15 opening new log file.
Oct 01 21:16:08.033 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1a using method epoll
Oct 01 21:16:13.477 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like it's working.

I noticed i had to be root to enter /var/log/tor (don't know if it matters or not).

I've spent a week on this so far and i won't sleep until i pin it. Can someone point me in the right direction to get this going?

Hello,

Here is the link to privoxy faq about error 503.
http://www.privoxy.org/faq/trouble.html#ERROR503

Also, when modifying the config file, you need to stop privoxy and after modification, restart privoxy.

Thanks free_ouyo,

I have seen that FAQ and many many others. I am not using zonealarm and even after stopping, appending, restarting i still get the said error. There are plenty of tutorials out there on setting these two up, they are all the same, i have followed them verbadim, but still no joy.

I installed them both from the default repository for FC4. Any other suggestions or comments?
