514 authentication required

Reported by: Peterson Owned by: developer
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Vidalia Version: 0.2.2
Keywords: Cc:



I am using Firefox 3.5.5, Tor, Vidalia and the torbutton plugin.

Tor connects properly, but Firefox can't open any page because of "514 authentication required" error.

I've tried both, going through Privoxy or directly setting proxy at and both fail.

Can anyone help me ?

(previously, pidgin used to open when I started vidalia. Now it doesn't. could it be connected ?)


PS : I have seen there is a previous ticket on this topic, but it doesn't help as I've already tried the suggested solution. I could'nt reopent this ticket, then creates a new one.

Tor listens for SOCKS connections on port 9050, not 9051. You're pointing either your browser or Privoxy (or both) at Tor's ControlPort which listens on ports 9051. Change it back to 9050, or just use Torbutton which will configure your browser properly for you.

And don't set the milestone.
