This howto uses the Raspberry Pi as the base system (tutorial is based on Debian), and Tor as the SOCKS5 Proxy.

The Objective: be anonymous on the internet, using the Raspberry Pi as a transparent SOCKS 5 proxy.

I didn’t intended this to be a completely exhaustive tutorial, but i feel it’s complete enough for the novice user to follow.

As a bonus, i’ve added info on how to use Tor as a Socks Proxy for your iPhone/iPad – no need to jailbreak.

If in any doubt following this guide, please leave a comment!
