I have tor running as a service on my computer and start bitcoind with -proxy=127.0.0.1:9050 but it fails to find any seeds through DNS or anything during startup, and even after leaving it on for more than a day it still not finding peers. I'm not getting any errors with connection or anything, and if I change port to for example 9051, it complains indicating that tor is running ok. Also, if I run it without the proxy option I get peers immediately and syncing starts right away. Can someone please help me? I'm running 0.17.1.
Here is also a little bit of the console print during startup. I was running it without proxy right before this so it got a few blocks:
