    1515 ,, ^1^ The other one may be either an [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/BareMetalHints#anonymous3Gmodem anonymous 3G modem]; [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/BareMetalHints#anonymouswifiadapter anonymous wifi adapter], another ethernet or wifi connected to your modem/router. [[BR]]
    1616 ,, ^2^ Theoretically you could use any OS that supports iptables or pf. If you don't want to use Ubuntu Oneiric you will have to edit the shell script. This will be easy for Debian derivatives but much more difficult for *BSD for example.

    1919   We recommend you use a VM as the client, preferably the same [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/Dev/BuildDocumentation#CreateTor-Workstation.ova VM build] as the non-bare metal TorBOX uses. Here's why:
