I have installed privoxy over TOR on a centos server, I can curl successfully simple http page, but failed to get https page like https://www.google.com. Here is my tor conf:

SocksPort 10010
SocksPolicy accept *
#Log notice syslog
Log info file /var/log/tor/tor1.log
RunAsDaemon 1
User digi-tor
CircuitBuildTimeout 30
NumEntryGuards 6
KeepalivePeriod 60
NewCircuitPeriod 15
DataDirectory /var/lib/tor1
PidFile /var/run/tor/tor-1.pid

And my privoxy config, I added/modified these lines:

forward-socks5t   /      .

When I make a curl for an https page:

curl -x  -s 'https://www/linkedin.com'

I get an error on privoxy log

Crunch: Forwarding failed: www:443
  • Have you checked that Tor is running? Can you paste the log after Tor has started?

Use :

curl --socks5-hostname https://www.linkedin.com

and take a look at further tutorial here


I do not know about the Google page failing to load but your LinkedIn URL is broken.

It is
It should be https://www.linkedin.com
