Bug ID: 977944
Summary: Privoxy is not functional with WLAN and does not
behave as expected.
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.1
Hardware: x86-64
OS: openSUSE 42.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Network
Assignee: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

when using Privoxy in Leap I encounter this stable problem:

a) all works well with lan. When installing and setting browsers to privoxy works, config page works. All as expected.

b) when using wlan: Firefox does not load the pages. When telling no proxy all
works. When using search sites they load even when privoxy is aktivated (while
all other not), but apparently without using privoxy, bypassing it.
Chromium: does load pages but although setting is to there is
not privoxy used, the load of config page answers that privoxy is not being
used. Again this is only with wlan. No problem while in Lan.

I looked up hwinfo: wlan0 and eth0 are the interfaces.
I looked whether they have IP, yes they have.
I looked with netstat -tulpn. Privoxy proudly listens on 8118 as expected.

What should the software do:
work with lan as well as with wlan.

TOR is currently not used in this setting.
