I'm facing the below-mentioned issue while starting Tor service using command, ‘Tor service’, in Kali terminal, if anyone could help me out to fix this it would be a big help.

root@kali:~# tor service
May 26 05:37:11.442 [notice] Tor 0.4.5.7 running on Linux with Libevent 2.1.12-stable, OpenSSL 1.1.1i, Zlib 1.2.11, Liblzma 5.2.5, Libzstd 1.4.8 and Glibc 2.31 as libc.

You can start tor service with:

sudo systemctl start tor

to check the status:

systemctl status tor

or you can use:

sudo service tor start

  • *root@kali:~# sudo systemctl start|status|stop|restart tor Too few arguments. Command 'restart' not found, did you mean: command 'restartd' from deb restartd command 'rstart' from deb x11-session-utils Try: apt install <deb name> Command 'stop' not found, but there are 17 similar ones. Command 'status' not found, did you mean: command 'qstatus' from deb gridengine-client command 'statfs' from deb gocryptfs command 'states' from deb enscript Try: apt install <deb name> May 26 at 1:06

  • I tried all the command you suggested but nothing happened. I shared the terminal above in two comments. May 26 at 1:08

  • I tried ‘systemctl status tor’ command it shows status ‘Active’ in green but my IP address wasn't changed. I tried other two command as well but nothing happened. May 26 at 19:32
