I have my network connection setup to point to Tor on

Safari, Camino 10.b1 and Firefox 1.5, with
I think I sense a problem already. It's Privoxy, an HTTP proxy, that
listens on 8118. Tor listens on port 9050 for SOCKS connections.
The Privoxy configuration that is installed by the Mac installer is set
to use Tor as a SOCKS proxy; thus, you have two ways of using Tor with
your web browser:
1. Tell your web browser to use Privoxy as an HTTP (and HTTPS) proxy;
Privoxy will then in turn use Tor.
2. Tell your browser to use Tor as a SOCKS proxy.
Normally, #1 is preferable. See Step Two in
Finally, please note that questions about using Tor should be sent to
or-talk@, not tor-webmaster@. You'll need to subscribe to or-talk@
before you can post. See Mailing List Information in
