    Question Doubt regarding the installation of tor on kali linux 2016.1

    Hi I have installed Kali 2016.1 64bit on my vmware and after that I have updated the system. I also installed tor that seems to have installed successully.Now when I execute the command "service tor start", it just gives me another prompt.When I check the status of the service I get the following result. The result of this command seems to be diferent from what I have seen people getting in other forums .may be due to dierent versions of tor and kali

    root@kalilinux2016:~# service tor start
    root@kalilinux2016:~# service tor status
    ● tor.service - Anonymizing overlay network for TCP (multi-instance-master)

    Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.
    Can any one please verify if it is the expected result .

    The reason is new distros use "Systemd" in replacement of "SysVinit", "service" command is deprecated now, you should use "systemctl" instead.
    For answer to your question, your TOR daemon looks working.
