Help with Tor?


Okay I have compiled Tor (Onion Router) from source and it indicates it is working, see copied text below

Aug 11 22:04:15.976 [notice] Tor v0.1.0.12. This is experimental software. Do no t rely on it for strong anonymity.
Aug 11 22:04:15.977 [notice] Configuration file '/usr/local/etc/tor/torrc' not p resent, using reasonable defaults.
Aug 11 22:04:15.977 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1a using method epol l
Aug 11 22:04:19.001 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like it's working.


However when I point either Firefox or Konqueror at 127.0.0.1, port 8118 and try to access the internet I get message

The connection was refused when attempting to contact the proxy server you have configured. Please check your proxy settings and try again.

Any help would be appreciated, I am using Suse 9.3 and KDE 3.4. I have only been using Linux two weeks so I appreciate your help and patience.

double posting is against the rules. you should only post in one place to make it easier for people to answer. just so you know, a mod will probably shut one down sooner or later.

sorry rude of me, won't do again.

It seems anyway that I figured out the answer to my own problem again. Will not trouble with more posts unless I get stuck on something for over 48 hours because I seem to figure things out on my own with a little time. thansk for patience with newb

Closed - discussion should continue here even though it's been solved.
