agreed.  i mention this because the way i usually use transparent
proxy mode is as mentioned above:  a local wifi router connected to
transparent Tor proxy connected to ISP.

in this situation, all the clients are behind the NAT WiFi router,
which complicated isolation.

if you _are_ the WiFi access point, as you intend to be, then there is
no NAT, and you avoid this issue.  (perhaps note to end-user: best to
connect clients directly to Cloak, rather than a router to Cloak :)

thank you for your prompt responses and attention to these details!

best regards,
