I have torrc-default file and torrc custom file on mac at:
folder (the package of the app).
In both files it is specified:
SocksPort 9150 IPv6Traffic PreferIPv6 KeepAliveIsolateSOCKSAuth ControlPort 9151
But when I start tor from unix, it loads listening to 9050.
So I tried to look at configuration in [https://tor.stackexchange.com/a/11870]:
and here I find :
# This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved # The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1 or similar, and Tor will ignore it DataDirectory /Applications/TorBrowser.app/TorBrowser/Data/Tor
So, where does the port 9050 come from?
EDITED after comment
I start the application from the folder where tor file is:
That folder also contains
./tor -f torrc
