18Anonymity on I2P => <reply> Anonymity is not a boolean - we are not trying to make something "perfectly anonymous", but instead are working at making attacks more and more expensive to mount. I2P is a low latency mix network, and there are limits to the anonymity offered by such a system, but the applications on top of I2P, such as Syndie, I2P mail, and I2PSnark extend it to offer both additional functionality and protection.
19Apache => a webserver you can use to serve <eepsites> (default is <Jetty>). All you have to do is tweak the existing eepsite server settings to match your Apache port. Make sure it doesn't leak information. See also: http://forum.i2p/viewtopic.php?t=194#578
