When ooniprobe starts it should perform checks to verify the config file is correct
This issue was automatically migrated from github issue https://github.com/TheTorProject/ooni-probe/issues/279.
There are some cases that can be detected as wrong settings that should fail gracefully at startup.
For example if you have set
false and no socks port is set ooniprobe should fail to start and output a comprehensible error message.
Also when the
socks_port is set it should verify that Tor is listening on such port.
