I am trying to redirect terminal commands through Tor. However i get the following error when I want to check my public IP address.

$ curl https://ipinfo.io/ip
curl: (35) OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to localhost:9051 

I have set proxy for terminal using these commands

$ export http_proxy='http://127.0.0.1:9051'    
$ export https_proxy='https://127.0.0.1:9051'

I have appended "HTTPTunnelPort 9051" to /etc/tor/torrc and restarted Tor service.

I have also checked to make sure 9051 port is open and listening.

$ sudo lsof -i -P -n | grep LISTEN 
tor       10757      debian-tor    6u  IPv4 120224      0t0  TCP 127.0.0.1:9050 (LISTEN)
tor       10757      debian-tor    7u  IPv4 120225      0t0  TCP 127.0.0.1:9051 (LISTEN)
