bsdtalk246 – Playing with tor

Looking forward to attending MeetBSD in California this weekend.  Still working on finding a new /home for all my stuff, but thank you all who have offered suggestions and hosting.
Playing with tor, but under no illusions that it makes me safe.

One trick I did was to add the following to my pf.conf file on OpenBSD:

block out all
pass out proto { tcp, udp } all user _tor
