Tor creates anonymus virtual tunnels.
An excellent addition to tor is torpark browser (google it) It is a portable browser (handy on usb drive) that gives you anonymus browsing anywhere in
public or home. It automatically creates a secure circuit through any network regardless of proxy.
Although this is all great your ip can be seen very easily.
Every ip packet holds the destination and source address.
Basically, your on a masked ip address but how do you recieve a web page? The answer is the packet address, and this can easily be logged.
So downloading P2P style and being anonymus is pretty hard since you have 100's of simultanious connections going on.
