Hi guys!
I'm trying to follow the "Torifying Irssi" guide but not works...
To point n. 3 /connect Server1 it returns: [(status)] 1589102209 WARNING torsocks[581]: [connect] Connection to a local address are denied since it might be a TCP DNS query to a local DNS server. Rejecting it fo [10:17] [] [1]
Can You give me some advice on how to solve? Thanks for reply.

you can change this in




add or change this setting it will remove your warning:

# Set Torsocks to allow outbound connections to the loopback interface.
# If set to 1, connect() will be allowed to be used to the loopback interface
# bypassing Tor. If set to 2, in addition to TCP connect(), UDP operations to
# the loopback interface will also be allowed, bypassing Tor. This option
# should not be used by most users. (Default: 0)
