If anyone needs to provide Linux support for family and friends, but you can't be bothered port-forwarding:

- install tor
- vi /etc/tor/torrc
- ucomment /DataDirectory
- restart tor
- note that hostname

You can now access that computer from anywhere in the world to help people, even when they're not at home.

For added cool, alias help='sudo systemctl start tor', so the process is only running when they need it, then just tell them to type 'help' in a terminal if they have a problem.
