Tor is great if you are already encrypting your traffic. It isn’t the best idea if you are doing a lot of clear text related activities.

The Tor Overview is worth reading through and I can see good uses for this type of tech for globe trotters who may need to bypass certain filters.

Some advanced tips:

If you want to forward multiple virtual ports for a single hidden service, just add more HiddenServicePort lines. If you want to run multiple hidden services from the same Tor client, just add another HiddenServiceDir line. All the following HiddenServicePort lines refer to this HiddenServiceDir line, until you add another HiddenServiceDir line:

HiddenServiceDir /usr/local/etc/tor/hidden_service/
HiddenServicePort 80

HiddenServiceDir /usr/local/etc/tor/other_hidden_service/
HiddenServicePort 6667
HiddenServicePort 22
