I downloaded tor which ran but was "unable to connect" when I tried to access any sites. I uninstalled it and reinstalled but now it is just displaying:

"Unable to connect to listener port"

Please let me know how i can fix it! I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling over it again but it doesn't work. I am using admin account on mac.

  • This sounds very strange. Did you install Tor Browser from torproject.org/download? If so, did you change any settings after installing? – JSEvans Aug 30 at 13:29

I'm not sure if it's working now, but I did it a time ago, in mac first, you need to have brew you could install via below command

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

then install

brew install tor polipo privoxy

so tor is installed now, but there further moves to touch.

apped below line in below file (if file dosn't exist create it):

/usr/local/etc/polipo/config

below lines:

socksParentProxy = "localhost:9050"
socksProxyType = socks5

now edit this file:

/usr/local/etc/privoxy/config

and uncomment below line from it:

 forward-socks5t / 127.0.0.1:9050 .

now

brew services start tor

brew services start polipo

brew services start privoxy

For checking if tor is connected or not

use this command:

tail -f /usr/local/var/log/tor.log  

if not you have to get a non-obfs-bridge bridge, and it's now deprecated, so you must use obfs3, scramblesuit, fte, or obfs4.

to get bridge just email get transport obfs4 to bridges@bridges.torproject.org.

edit /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc file and append these below lines to the end of torrc file:

UseBridges 1
ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/local/bin/obfs4proxy
Bridge `YOUR-OBFS4-BRIDGE`

before doing last step dowload this file and make it as executable via chmod +x obfs4proxy command & put the downloaded file in below directory:

/usr/local/bin/obfs4proxy

now you can restart tor, and it's ready.

brew services restart tor
