I'm running TBB on windows 8. I have clicked on onion symbol on top left, clicked on "preference", Ticked "Use custom proxy settings" and put my socks5 client info.
I see the IP from socks5 client when I checked on browser.
Can anyone tell me if this means I'm running socks5 over Tor network OR since I don't use "the recommended proxy settings", it means I gave up using Tor.
I see 127.0.0.1:9150 when I tick on "use recommended proxy settings".
Port 9150 is listening port, but I do not know what is using port 9150.
I have never seen accurate answer on this question.
I will appreciate if you can explain this further. Thanks for reading.
