    Problem with Privoxy


    Hi,
    I am using Manjaro Linux Xfce Edition.

    I installed privoxy & configured Firefox to use proxy 127.0.0.1 / port 8118.

    Problem is when I try to open any page it says proxy server is refusing connections.

    I have used Privoxy before in Debian. AFAIK it doesn't need any configuration unless using tor.

    So, cant understand what is going wrong.

    Hello.

    What's the output of
    - nmap localhost
    - ps -ef | grep -i privoxy

    ?

    The problem is solved.

    I had to create a folder named config in my hom dir & do

    sudo systemctl enable privoxy.service

    & done.
