Re: TOR on Academic networks (problem)

Since we can't put thousands of lines in the exit policy without causing

entries in /etc/hosts that will be denied by the exit policy (thus
causing the client to pick another exit -- but not preventing access
directly by IP address), or the more secure, but more problematic,
blocking by changing the kernel routing tables to send those networks
into a blackhole on the TOR router.

What'd be preferable to both of those, but even harder to implement,
would be to route that traffic (or even all traffic) through a
transparent proxy with an IP outside the /16.

'Course if you're going to do that, you might as well just be a middleman node.
