I have tried running Proxychains on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac. I am completely new to this sort of thing and just want to learn. I am not a coder.
When I run
proxychains firefox google.com on Intel Mac it returns
-bash: proxychains: command not found. When I run the same command on M1 it returns
zsh: command not found: proxychains.
Most instructions I’ve read show
proxychains as the command to use, but, as shown above, that isn’t working. I’ve read one suggestion to use
proxychains4 as a command (though I’m not sure why) so I tried that. When I run
proxychains4 firefox google.com both computers return the following:
% proxychains4 firefox google.com [proxychains] config file found: /opt/homebrew/etc/proxychains.conf [proxychains] preloading /opt/homebrew/Cellar/proxychains-ng/4.14/lib/libproxychains4.dylib proxychains can't load process....: No such file or directory
locate proxychains shows the path
/opt/homebrew/Cellar/proxychains-ng/4.14/lib/libproxychains4.dylib is visible on both computers.
I have searched high and low for an answer on why this won’t work but I’m stumped.
