I have configured Tor to run as a Windows service, it seems to be working as it is producing logs. I have configured it to run on 9990. I have configured Firefox proxy to use it, however when I check my configuration against check.torproject.org it fails and shows my actual IP. I am running Windows 10 and ESET Smart Security. I have tried running it on default port by commenting out "+SocksPort 9990" but still the same results.

Following are the log and configuration:

  • N.B. that standard firefox has situations where it will leak DNS requests under certain circumstances even with the proxy configured as SOCKS5 with remote lookups enabled, which Tor Browser has patches to prevent. – cacahuatl Oct 28 '17 at 23:35

Not "+SocksPort 9990" but just "SocksPort 9990" - and, according to your logs - it is not fully bootstrapped yet when you're trying to use it - look for a message

Sep 28 22:41:48.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 100%: Done

only after this line you can start to use Tor. And - you seem to be using it as a HTTP proxy, but it's a SOCKS one(in the latest alpha they do try to add HTTPS, but I do prefer SOCKS to prevent leaks):

Sep 28 22:41:39.000 [warn] Socks version 71 not recognized. (Tor is not an http proxy.)

Use "FoxyProxy Standart" add-on for your firefox and point all through SOCKS proxy on port 9990 with DNS queries through the SOCKS proxy - there's a switch or checkbox in proxy settings for it
