Tor won't start.

It keeps giving me the error that it failed to bind to listener ports

This is the terminal message

[NOTICE] Opening Socks listener on [WARN] Could not bind to Can't assign requested address [WARN] Controller gave us config lines that didn't validate: Failed to bind one of the listener ports.

Can anyone please help? Im using a Mac by the way.

  • Are you sure there are no other tor processes running? Can you see if other processes are using that port (I think you can use lsof on Mac)? – Steve Jan 10 at 0:16
