Change port from 9050


Hi. By default you guys use port 9050 which interferes if we are running our own Tor process, Tor Browser uses port 9150. Maybe use 9250 or something? This would avoid interfering with other Tor processes. Would the developers consider changing?


This should be available in future build but currently there is no time frame on that. We have an issue logged for this and can be tracked here



We do not use port 9050 by default. Rather, we use 9250 by default, or 9260 in beta releases, 9270 in nightly builds, and 9280 or 9290 in developer builds. In the future, we plan to let the operating system choose an unused port number so there will never be collisions:

What is the symptom that you are observing?
