I am currently trying to use privoxy with tor. I have done the following.

Installed Tor Browser. From command line run: tor -f .\torrc-defaults Netstat -a: shows port 9150 and 9151.

Installed privoxy forward-socks5t / .

On windows 10 allowed incoming and outgoing connections to 8118, 9150 and 9151.

Set proxy on my browser to port 8118

After all of this I receive http 503 error forwarding failure

  • Is there a requirement for privoxy? It seems superfluous? Does setting the browser to use Tor's SOCKSPort work? What does privoxy's log say?
