You'd be amazed at the number of times I'm asked if we can use SSH encryption instead of PGP, and usually by people who should know the difference.

I have been and ever since I installed the client directly on my PC directly, I haven't been accumulating any points for my team (nor myself).

A good way to learn iptables a lot, is to configure Tor and your machine to relay all tcp traffic to it. I may post a useful tutorial soon 🙃

Basically you need redsocks, some easy little configuration, and then iptables to route packets to the REDSOCKS chain, then block udp that is not 127.0.0.1 (for tor dns) and block icmp too, as this protocols are not relayed to tor, and therefore needs to be blocked to avoid leaks.
