Description (last modified by hellais)

This issue was automatically migrated from github issue https://github.com/TheTorProject/ooni-probe/issues/279.

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.
