Re: TOR and ISP

Perhaps you meant when /using Tor/ the ISP cannot detect the destination
address or port number?  (I read your email several times and did not
detect this meaning.)  Surely on a generic encrypted connection the ISP
can determine the destination of the connection.  (For a Tor user, that
would be the the IP address of the entry guard.)
