  • You did not provide enough information to say. Are you at a location that may block Tor? (example: University, Work, Hotel) Are you in a country the may block Tor? Are you seeing the same outcome using a bridge?

That log shows that Tor couldn't connect to one of the Proxy clients. If that's the last message that you got, then the issue is pretty minor. One of the many proxies are unavailable.

Simply try to connect again.

If you're behind a filtered network, try rotating bridges by clicking on the button that says "Configure Tor", and choosing a bridge from the list. Then try to connect.
