By default, torsocks will assume that it should connect to the Tor SOCKS proxy running at 127.0.0.1 on port 9050 being the defaults of the Tor daemon.
In order to use a configuration file, torsocks tries to read the /etc/tor/torsocks.conf file or look for the environment variable TORSOCKS_CONF_FILE with the location of the file. If that file cannot be read, torsocks will use sensible defaults for most Tor installations.
For further information on configuration, see torsocks.conf(5).
