Re: [tor-talk] tor using SSH

I don't know if this is what you are talking about or not, but a while back I noticed port 22 (the traditional SSH port) traffic I wasn't expecting on one of my machines. Checking tor's cached-descriptors file I noticed one or more tor nodes was using port 22 as one of its ports (I forget which one) and this was what I was observing.
