Tor & Privoxy do other use my connection


Ok I got tor and privoxy set up and use it with firefox every now and then. My question is will others use my ip to bounce to another location. TCPtrack has been going nutz ever since I set up tor & privoxy?

I use Tor and Privoxy because of a shared wireless community.

I do not understand "My question is will others use my ip to bounce to another location".

Your ip will show if you have set yourself up as an exist node.

Alright here are the 3 main ip's trying to get through almost everyday

12.44.215.27:9001 AT&T
130.161.165.129:443 DUTN
128.30.28.19:9001 MIT

I will follow that up with when I log into suse 10 no problems the only thing different in 10 is tor/privoxy are not installed. On that note what is a good firewall to block these ip's tried fwbuilder but was looking for something a little easier to configure and guarddog package has alot of dep. issues

As far as what I meant "will other use my connection to bounce to another" you are bouncing off someones connection they could do the same once they have your IP
