Re: [tor-talk] Help me secure my setup

I used a different approach - I used Socks5Proxy option in tor and set up 
a small socks proxy on a server that listens on the VPN end (using ssh 
with -D option). So my tor on home router listens on its SocksPort and 
communicates with the external world using another socks proxy through the 
VPN. I filtered all other traffic.

Seems to work for now...

My PC is not turned on 24/7 (router and server are) and as I mentioned 
before, I prefer to have a client constantly running, as I don't want to 
give out a correlation between time of starting the client and time of my 
Tor activities.
