Thank you, some config files where helpfully commented!
However, I couldn't figure out where the iptables commands are
specified. There is a lot going on I don't understand.
E.g. why are ports 4444,4445 and 7657 redirected? And why does tinyproxy
have to got through the transparent proxy?

# iptables -t nat -L
Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
DNAT udp [...] owner UID match tinyproxy ctstate NEW to:
DNAT tcp [...] owner UID match tinyproxy ctstate NEW to:

What am I breaking by using tinyproxy to contact I2P as upstream proxy?
