    Question Automated Proxy-Management...

    Guys, here's a quick 'n dirty overview of what I want to accomplish:

    Each time I'm opening up Firefox, the computer should connect through another Proxy to the Internet.
    What I'm especially looking for is some way to find and use freely available, yet stable and somewhat secure proxies which are changed each time Firefox gets opened up.
    Maybe there's a tool that silently runs in the background and searches for valid (secure) proxies and upon opening frirefox picking a random proxy from a pool?

    Yeah, now throw your comments, suggestions and hints at me, please!

    Hm.. how much would Putty contribute to that process?
    Again, goal is to find a way to automatically search and find valid (secure) online proxies to be used with every application connecting to the internet.
    Every time a connection to the internet is established, a new proxy should be used...

    Sooo... I did set up Proxy-Management via caf's awesome Tutorial: Privoxy-Tor-Squid so far. I won't be using Squid though in order to avoid those mentioned DNS leaks.
    Right now my system is stuck at the last step: Enabling Tor and Privoxy in the Runlevel-Environment. Enabling Tor works great, but Privoxy tells me:

    /etc/init.d/privoxyd start returned 7 (Program does not run):
    That's it. What am I doing wrong here?

    Hi
    Did you run the above command or from the GUI? If the GUI try the
    command line.

    Is your config file ok, you didn't just copy the file from a webpage?
    This can add hidden characters to a file. Try running dos2unix on the
    file.

    Else http://www.privoxy.org/faq/index.html may be of help

    Hi malcolm!

    Nope, I didn't run the command from command line, but from the Runlevel-GUI. But hey, I ran dos2unix on the mentioned file and both Tor and Privoxy are enabled now.

    Unfortunately running /etc/init.d/privoxyd start from console returns:

    mask@man:~> /etc/init.d/privoxyd start
    Starting Privoxy.../etc/init.d/privoxyd:55: could not copy /etc/resolv.conf to chroot jail failed
    Still, Tor does not successfully connect. I'll cosult you link now. Further recommendations are very much appreciated!

    Issuing the above command as root also returns "failed". I don't get it...
