    3535 * __Is my router an "exit node" to the regular Internet? I don't want it to be.__
    3636   * No! You're confusing Tor and I2P! By default an I2P installation will only ever route traffic within the network for others, rendering it unmonitorable by your ISP or government. Your ISP may notice that you're connecting over encrypted channels to other machines on the network, but the nature of those communications will be entirely undiscoverable. In I2P teminology, an "exit node" is what we call an "outproxy", or connection to the wider net. It's possible to function as an outproxy in I2P, similar to how exit nodes operate in Tor-land, but that requires manual configuration on the part of the I2P user.
    37    * By default, everyone on the network participates in the network to help route traffic for other I2P users. We do not configure an "outproxy" on a default installation, so the only traffic a default I2P installation will route will be for other I2P routers (nodes) within the network, encrypted and anonymous by design.
     37   * By default, everyone on the network participates in the network to help route traffic for other I2P users. We do not configure any user to be an "outproxy" on a default installation, though by default there is an http web proxy to the normal internet (false.i2p), so the only traffic a default I2P installation will route will be for other I2P routers (nodes) within the network, encrypted and anonymous by design.
