I was able to connect the tor.service with the command line but when I check with check.torproject.org it says I am not connected and my ip is still the same. I may have missed something but I read the instructions on ArchWiki. When I run systemctl status tor I get this:

● tor.service - Anonymizing Overlay Network

I have ran through a number of times with the Archwiki to solve this along with some google-fu but I haven't found anything that has helped. Any suggestions?
