I'm trying to ping a host through TOR and Proxychains.

I have proxychains configured to work with TOR with:

socks4 9050

in proxychains.conf and I have TOR service running.

I then try proxychains ping and get this output:

ProxyChains-3.1 (
PING (**.**.136.94) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from **.**.136.94: icmp_req=1 ttl=36 time=855 ms
64 bytes from **.**.136.94: icmp_req=2 ttl=36 time=72.5 ms
64 bytes from **.**.136.94: icmp_req=3 ttl=36 time=148 ms

showing that it's not going through TOR. For some reason only proxychains iceweasel seems to go through TOR. Everything else doesn't.

TOR only supports TCP, not UDP or ICMP.
