Hi Zack,

All you have to do is to change the port in the config to 127.0.0.1:8000 not 8118 

If you can't do it, here is the control address http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f31/cant-start-privoxy-on-firefox-tor-vidalia-544928.html

The config text files are supposed to be in the same folder as the executable.

Regards,

Pamela Conley

When this error is shown on the screen, it means that your config.txt line 695 begins with a port and an IP address but it lacks the listen-address directive: 

http://config.privoxy.org/user-manual/config.config.html#LISTEN-ADDRESS.

After putting all this code, check that the file contains listen-address directive. If it does not contain it then the default (127.0.0.1:8118) is selected.
