#23678 closed defect (fixed)

Tor kinda _is_ an http proxy now...

When we added HTTPTunnelPort, the answer that we give when you try to use your SOCKSPort as an HTTP proxy became wrong. We should fix it and explain that, Tor sorta _is_ an HTTP proxy... but this port isn't.

(If anybody wants to fix this up, the string to revise is SOCKS_PROXY_IS_NOT_AN_HTTP_PROXY_MSG in proto_socks.c)

Mostly looks good!

The test suite needs updating to expect the revised message:

  FAIL src/test/test_socks.c:766: expected log to contain "Socks version 71 not recognized. " "(Tor is not an http proxy.)"  Captured logs:
    1. warn: "Socks version 71 not recognized. (This port is not an HTTP proxy; did you want to use HTTPTunnelPort?)\n"
