Can't connect to remote tor
Vidalia is unable to connect remote tor server.
For example I have a Tor on a Linux server and trying to control it with Vidalia from my desktop. I provide valid IP, TCP port and password in Vidalia settings (these credentials are suitable to control remote Tor with telnet), nevertheless Vidalia says that Tor is not running.
Also it's very strange for such "remote" use scenario, that Vidalia requires tor executable name. If I leave tor executable name empty, the message box "Error saving settings", "You must specify the name of your Tor executable" appears. I wouldn't have tor installed on my desktop. I've got a server for such purposes.
Google says that same error was reported and solved 6 years ago in old Trac: https://trac-vidalia.torproject.org/projects/vidalia/ticket/271
Maybe this bug is trivial and developers are able to fix it in 5 minutes. If not I can try to fix it myself and provide patch.
