    197  Network accessible router:: <reply> To make your router accessible by all computers on your network subsitute '127.0.0.1' for the IP address of the server in line 'clientApp.0.args=7657 127.0.0.1 ./webapps/' in file ~/.i2p/clients.config. Be aware that traffic to the router console will be unencrypted. You should use <SSH tunnels> instead.
    198  OnionCat:: <reply> OnionCat creates a transparent IP layer on top of <Tor>'s <hidden services>. It transmits any kind of IP-based data transparently through the Tor network on a location hidden basis. See http://www.cypherpunk.at/onioncat/.

    199199 OpenVPN:: a software application that implements VPN solutions for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections. See http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/333-what-is-openvpn.html.
    200  Remote router:: <reply> If you run the I2P router on another computer the best way to access it is using <SSH tunnels>. Alternatively you can set the router to accept connections from the network (see <network accessible router>).
    201  Shutdown:: <reply> The reason a shutdown/restart of your router takes 11 minutes is that tunnel leases last 10 minutes. Your router waits 11 minutes to make sure that all participating tunnels are finished.
    202  SOCKS5 IRC proxy:: <reply> With a SOCKS5 IRC proxy tunnel you'll be able to connect to several IRC servers without having to setup a seperate tunnel for each one. Here are the instructions: http://zzz.i2p/topics/690
    203  SSH tunnel settings:: <reply> To tunnel I2P through SSH create the necessary tunnels by either running 'ssh -L7657:127.0.0.1:7657 -L4444:127.0.0.1:4444 $USER@$SERVER' or setting the LocalForwards in your ~/.ssh/config accordingly.
    204  TLS:: <reply> Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide security for communications over networks such as the Internet. Since I2P encrypts connections by default TLS is not needed for internal services.
    205  VPN:: <reply> VPNs (virtual private networks) are a very useful tool. For the purpose of staying anonymous those commercial VPN providers that are being hyped everywhere are useless though. Be careful.

    239  Anonymity 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.

    240240 Anonymity:: a broad subject. Most importantly it's not a boolean. You may want to ask me about the <disclaimer> or <staying safe>.
    241  Disclaimer:: <reply> I2P is still a work in progress. It should not be relied upon for "guaranteed" anonymity at this time, due to the relatively small size of the network and the lack of extensive academic review. It is not immune to to attacks from those with unlimited resources, and may never be, due to the inherent limitations of low-latency mix networks.

    242242 Exit node sniffing:: a potential problem when routing unencrypted traffic through Tor or I2P to the web, because a malicious exit node/outproxy can easily sniff that traffic. This problem does not exist inside I2P or when using Tor's Hidden Services.
