polipo fail to connect local 127.0.0.1 address - General SOCKS server failure


8 months ago

Hello,

i set the OS (Raspbian 10) proxy to be Tor:
sudo su
echo -e "http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8080\nhttps_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8080/\nsocks_proxy=socks5://127.0.0.1:8080/" >> /etc/environment
exit

8080 is port where the polipo listening. But it appears like there are problems connecting local services from localhost as per the /var/log/syslog:

Jan 13 14:05:29 raspberrypi polipo[508]: Connect to 127.0.0.1:9981 failed: General SOCKS server failure

it is flood of such errrors. On that port is the web service tvheadend.
i disabled logging in /etc/polipo/config, but want to solve the cause. Please how to exclude that particular port or all connections where the destination is localhost from being sent to the Tor?
