  • You better use port 443 for ORPort, 80 for DirPort and - if you need a bridge - use port 443 with Obfs3/4 transport for bridge port and 1080 for ORPort. Use tor.exe with -f /path/to/config/file flag to run it as a service for your bridge. need further help? – Alexey Vesnin Sep 19 '16 at 18:10

First you need to download Tor Browser and install it. Once the installation is complete, launch the Tor Browser you will be presented with a window as shown below. Click the second button that says "Configure".

In the next screen slick "yes" and then "Next"

In the following windows, the default configurations should work in most cases, so keep clicking "next" (or change settings as per your wish - especially the one about the local proxy).

Sometimes you will have to wait until a connection is made.
