Of  course  of course... But in a country like Iran where ALL internet access  are  hardly monitored and filtered, where clients have to show their  ID  to  enter an internet cafe and where all their data will be recorded, I would like to understand how a TOR node can be run, unless it receives the clearance of the administration!

Any explaination?
