I know that the Privoxy 3.0.21 product is used mostly on Linux and developed there, too. That said, there are a lot of Win 8 potential users. I am one of them.
The install information is not too helpful.
I do not know if Win 8 is supported.
I am unable to get the Privoxy Service to start- error is 1067 which in Win 8 land could be anything. The service has been created but not started- Manual start does not work. Error is that Privoxy cannot bind to 127.0.0.1:8118 possible some other program using port. I have configured Firefox proxy setting as advised: HTTP and SSL 127.0.0.1 port 8118
I have created rules in Win 8 Firewall that opens port 8118 to Privoxy.exe. Using NMAP I scanned localhost and port 8118 is being used by Privoxy. Errosr is 1067. In services I assigned the admin as user. Still no joy!
Hardware is 64bit running Win 8.1 (preview)
