    Tails: Proxy server refusing connection


    I am trying to get Tails to work. When I start the browser I get error messages: "proxy server is refusing connection. I have looked at Tails documentation and tried to find an answer through Google, but not finding an answer. I'm not sure what settings to change to resolve this. Appreciate help

    Thanks

    Tails is a debian-based linux distribution that routes all traffic through tor nodes. Are you dealing with a local proxy, or a tor proxy?

    I'm not sure which proxy this is. I can run Iceweasel OK. In the network settings 'no proxy' is selected for connections.

    So, iceweasel is a firefox clone. You can run that ok? What is your other browser that you are having problems with?

    Please don't hijack postings from a year ago. Post your question in its own thread, and tell us what errors you are getting. Just saying that the proxy server is refusing connections is not useful.
