i'm using manjaro. I'm trying to use: torify whois, torsocks whois, proxychais whois. I tried to do that with sudo command, and all this command give me back the same output:

[Feb 23 21:15:57] PERROR torsocks[3181]: socks5 libc connect: Connection refused (in socks5_connect() at socks5.c:185)
getaddrinfo(whois.verisign-grs.com): Non-recoverable failure in name resolution
[manjaro@manjaro Desktop]$ 

I asked friend to do the same operation on his distro, and for him it work perfectly :( could someone help me with that ?


Start tor first:

$ tor
blah blah blah
... [notice] Bootstrapped 100%: Done

Then open another terminal and use torify / torsocks with whatever you want.


run this command

systemctl start tor
