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)
