  • Somehow, it says tor is running, but, don't know how, as using proxychains returns the following
    ProxyChains-3.1 (
    Error: no DISPLAY environment variable specified
    Isnt working as it show my IP clearly.

It says the following and still don't work as it supposed to Steev
root@IISAChiefSecurityStaff:~# service tor status tor is running. root@IISAChiefSecurityStaff:~# service tor start Starting tor daemon...done (already running). root@IISAChiefSecurityStaff:~# proxychains firefox ProxyChains-3.1 ( Error: no DISPLAY environment variable specified

what do you suggest. It doesn't show the actual "dot" and phrases showing is running. Like many vids.
