Actually, the original "514 Authentication required" came because the
user configured his browser to proxy to Tor's *control* port, on 9051.
Tor's socks port is 9050.

But the real problem here was that the user was trying to mess with
his proxy settings at all. You should either use the Tor Browser Bundle
(which should just work), or install Torbutton and let it configure your
proxy settings.
