My ISP doesn't offer global IP address(10.10.20.X shared), which I can't help people by setting up middle(nonexit) nodes. Why tor require opening a port!?

What about HiddenService? It can work without opening a port to global, right? So, how about this idea.

"GhostNode" 1. It doesn't require user to open a port to global(no router setting). 2. It works like a hidden service protocol. Your global IP won't go public.

Client---torBridgeNode===tor2===tor2===tor4-->website or Client---tor1===tor2===tor4-->website

tor1; nonexit tor2; ghost tor4; exit

tor1 ask tor2 to connect tor4. (just like HiddenService did) tor2(GhostNode) make a connection to tor4(exitnode).

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Remove an old triaging keyword.

Summary: "GhostNode" - a new way to build IP-hidden networking"GhostNode" - support relays that cannot accept incoming connections.

This is a complex enough design space that it's going to take a bunch of research to have a chance of working out right. It seems to resemble stuff that various P2P designs do in order to support some nodes that have outgoing-only capabilities.
