    Hello

    I have set up Azureus with Tor/Privoxy as per the instructions. Tor and Privoxy are running fine. In Azureus settings, I have enabled proxy of tracker communication and set proxy host as 127.0.0.1:9050.

    BUT - it doesn't seem to work. Every time I get the message:

    Socks proxy 127.0.0.1:9050 check failed: connection timeout

    I have searched all over the net for any solutions but unable to find any. Please help

    Thanks in advance

    Please don't use the Tor network for torrent and other P2P traffic...that is exactly the reason why it is currently slow to the point of nearly unusable
