I keep trying to start Tor, but I cannot fully connect to the network. I get to this error, just because it timed out:

cameron@kali:~/Desktop/tor-browser_en-US$ ./start-tor-browser

It says that I have connected to the Tor network from whatever they call the Vidalia now (not actually Vidalia, just what you see when you launch newest versions of Tor)... But I check http://check.torproject.org and I'm not connected. I am fully able to connect to the Tor network from my Windows OS, so my ISP isn't blocking access. If you can help, either tell me how to fix it, or tell me a new method, it would mean alot.

OS: Kali Linux 1.0.6 x64

  • I'm not familiar with Kali Linux. Does it have some sort of firewall which could be blocking outgoing connections? – Steven Murdoch Jul 24 '14 at 18:30
  • No, it doesn't. It is just a customized version of Debian. – user3226 Jul 27 '14 at 20:30
  • Does the tor service work? sudo apt-get install tor tor-arm && service tor start && arm If the service works, in Iceweasel, goto Preferences>Advanced>Network>Connection>Settings (I am on windows right now, if there is any mistake with the config path, sorry.) - Manual Proxy Configuration SOCKS Host: (or try localhost) Port 9050 SOCKSv4 TIP: Update to Kali 1.0.8 – php_coder_3809625 Jul 30 '14 at 7:19
