I am trying to connect to a running instance of Tor with the Tor Control (TC) Protocol using Telnet on the ControlPort (specified in the torrc file) on Windows.
Whenever I connect using Windows's own implementation of Telnet or with PuTTY, I just receive an empty prompt. Knowing that TC only allows the
QUIT commands, I enter one of those. No matter which command I enter, I receive the error
514 Authentication Required.
So, Tor is not letting me authenticate and thus I cannot control Tor with Telnet commands. What could I be doing wrong?
