Local HTTP Proxy is unreachable. Is Polipo running properly?

Tor utilises a proxy in order to run. This issue is with your Tor configuration. You need to ensure Privoxy/Polipo is running and configured correctly to work with Tor.

Neither Privoxy nor Polipo come configured for Tor. Select your specific operating system from this site: https://www.torproject.org/docs/installguide.html.en and follow the directions for replacing your sample configuration file with one specifically for Tor.
