I'm setting up a ssh tunnel to a secure server for my surfing. If I
configure firefox to use the appropriate proxy directly (i.e.
localhost:8080 in socks under firefox preferences) it works as
expected. I have set up /etc/tsocks.conf to send everything to
localhost:8080 as in all the examples on the net (as well as tried
/usr/local/etc/tsocks.conf), but when I use tsocks firefox, my proxy
at 8080 is not used and the local internet connection is. I get no
errors on stdout, etc. What could be wrong?
