Description (last modified by hellais)

This issue was automatically migrated from github issue

There are some cases that can be detected as wrong settings that should fail gracefully at startup.

For example if you have set start_tor to false and no socks port is set ooniprobe should fail to start and output a comprehensible error message.

Also when the socks_port is set it should verify that Tor is listening on such port.

These checks should probably go inside of ooni.settings in the method read_config_file.
