I am new to stem(not the tree stem, the proxy). I made a python script that connects to a proxy using stem. I am getting a [Errno:111] error, how do I fix it? (The error occurred even though I typed:"service tor start" in the terminal) (Using Kali Linux)

Error:[Errno:111] Connection refused

Help will be appreciated a lot. Thank you.

  • Can we see more of the error? Errno 111 sounds like "Connection refused". Somewhere, you're connecting to a service that doesn't exist or isn't accepting connections. We need more information, e.g. some code snippet that illustrates what you're trying to do. – cacahuatl Dec 30 '17 at 20:31
  • Okay so it is connection refused, but there's still no context in what its being refused to? Can we get the previous requested code snippet? – cacahuatl Dec 30 '17 at 22:31
  • It was just that. Error [Errno 111] – Justin Chang Dec 31 '17 at 11:57
  • Yes, we need to see the code. There's no way we can tell anything from some random error without any context. – cacahuatl Dec 31 '17 at 20:06

I solved my answer by typing :

/etc/init.d/tor restart

in the terminal. Apparently Tor was not restarting properly.
