A Tor Exit node - 6 Months on

• Category: Tor

A little over 6 months ago, I remember reading a post on Reddit about being somewhat of a shortage of Tor Exit Nodes, and after subsequently reading an a post by <> regarding setting this up, I thought, hey, why don't I do the same?

I won't go into too much detail regarding setting this up as the aformention post above does just this. However, here are some stats.

Over 7.5tb transferred for < 10usd per month.

Oddly enough, my transfer rate has gone down over time, but you have to remember, I am hosting this on a CHEAP vps, one which no doubt, I am sharing with many other customers who are using it for their websites, email and god knows what else. Either way, so long as the speed continues to be relatively decent, I think it's well worth less than 10 bucks per month.

Oh, and out of all of this time, I have only received 2 DMCA related emails. Shocking!
