I have problem running Privoxy. I installed it using Yast. In Firefox, I set the manual proxy configuration of http to 8118 and the SOCKS host to 9050.

I copied all the files from /etc/privoxy to my home folder /home/xuser.

I start privoxy by going to terminal and typing:

xuser@linux-w7mn:~> /usr/sbin/privoxy
Jun 20 21:37:27.786 Privoxy(7fc4c89216f0) Info: Privoxy version 3.0.10
Jun 20 21:37:27.786 Privoxy(7fc4c89216f0) Info: Program name: /usr/sbin/privoxy
When I try to connect, I get this message:

Proxy Server Refused Connection

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

The browser is configured to use a proxy server, but the proxy refused a connection.

* Is the browser's proxy configuration correct? Check the settings and try again.
* Does the proxy service allow connections from this network?
* Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.
I checked the man page. I checked their Privoxy - Home Page. I found nothing specific to Suse 11.1. I found nothing on Google for Suse 11.1 either.

Any ideas how I can get this to work?
