Using the Raspberry Pi as a gateway proxy

Conclusions

Onion Pi gives users an option for operating a transparent gateway server and anonymizing the main identification feature: the IP address. Annoying configuration of individual client applications is thus a thing of the past. Unlike a locally operated Tor proxy, this setup anonymizes more than the data stream of just a few applications and extends it to all your Internet traffic.
