The directions I used turned a normal Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with two network
adapters into a tor middle box. It was a long time ago and I don't remember
how I did it, but I had the torbox url commented in my config next to the
transproxy option. I looked at the torbox url via internet archive (june
2012) but I can't find the directions I used. My iptables don't seem to
have any entries.
