    I downloaded the Vidalia Bridge bundle and Tor connects just fine and I configured Opera's 12.14 proxy settings according to the guide but all I get when I try to get to a website with Opera Is: Could not connect to proxy server - access denied. Been working on this for days and decided to ask here. Running WinXP pro with Dnscrypt as a service.
    Thanks

    Hello TaranScorp:

    Did/do you need to also install the Torbutton and TorLauncher extensions to Opera?

    Are either/both imperative for proper operation?

    Does the usual Tor-Browser-Bundle v3.5.2.1 function correctly for you otherwise?

    The usual Tor-Browser-Bundle works just fine. I didn't know anything about the extensions, where do you find them?

    After I launched the TBB 3.5.2.1, I opened Tools > Add-ons > Extensions and there they were.

    If they're needed for Opera 12.14 and if so, where to get them is an unknown.

    i dont think opera need extensions, I have sucesfully configured opera 12.16 with vidalia-TOR bundle but i dont use dns crypt, to do that i only need to change 2 thing :
    1. change maual proxy to use SOCKS
    2. opera:config--> proxy, check Use Remote SOCKS DNS Lookups

    jynx: I did what you suggested but still can't connect, all I get in opera is, can not connect to server. I'm using oper 2.14. Vidalia makes a connection , I don't think it has anything to do with dnscrypt cause the Tor browser connects just fine and then through SecurityKiss. Are you configuring your opera proxy for server 127.0.0.1 and port 8118?

    Try using port 9050
    Read This documentation, here mentioned that tor listening to port 9050

    When I use port 9050 at least I do not get the "Can Not connect to the Proxy Server" error just the reload button on Opera just keeps going in circles forever and I can't get the webpage to load. Tor loads fine I just can't get Opera to connect properly.

    If I start SecurityKiss and then Opera everything works fine. The Tor Browser bundle works just fine . I just can't get Opera 2.14 to go through the Vidalia Tor bundle. I have OperaTor which is just like the Tor browser bundle with firefox but bundled with Opera but It's a 10 version of Opera and has Prioxy.
