When I was using polipo on Ubuntu, it automatically start at system boot.
Now I'm using opensuse, I installed polipo from the repository, however, I have to manually start it by using "sudo polipo". If root privilege is not given, polipo won't work correctly.
I installed and configured polipo/tor a while back and one of the things that regularly surprises me is this:
Boot up and Firefox, which is configured to use the polipo SOCKS proxy, always goes through tor (via https://check.torproject.org) but Chromium does not go through tor, till I've been booted for a while.
I installed Tor & Polipo via the Software Center. I followed instructions found at this question (but since the config file was 404, I used a config from Tor + Polipo 5 Minute Install Guide Ubuntu 11.10).
Tor & Polipo are working properly. I set my network to manual proxy & added the 127.0.0.1:8118 for all but socks (which is 9050). Those are the ports set in the Polipo config file.
Hi, I am reviewing my options to make an educated guess prior to installing tor along with obfsproxy from the Ubuntu Software Center and selektor as GUI from. My query concerns the possible use and added advantages of polipo AND/OR privoxy.
I will be using the lot with a stand-alone Firefox v.33.0 browser. I.e. I don't want the TBB all-in-one tar ball.
