    Well for the nessus issue, we don't have it by default so you may not get much help.
    But for your tor issue, try these two guides, the helped me.
    Step by step with Tor - Ubuntu Forums
    Also make sure that you have configured your /etc/privoxy/config file.

    EDIT: Ensure networking service is started as well.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Perhaps you could be a little more specific than "isn't working" and "won't work". Are there error messages? If so what is the exact text of the error message? Did you try your google'fu on those terms? Do you simply not know how to use tor/privoxy/whatever else you're having problems with? (In which case the obvious solution should be RTFM). Does anything networking related work?

    On the topic of nessus, is the server/daemon process running? If you do a ps or top can you see it? If you do a netstat can you see it listening for connections?
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
