Using I2P version 0.9.37-0, and after some difficulty I was able to set up Firefox with the settings at the bottom. I noticed that I am able to reach clearnet sites in the same browser, and that hadn't worked before. Should I be concerned about this?

I noticed this after trying out ransack.i2p and clicking on a clearnet search result. Is it possible that clearnet sites load through i2p?

Sorry for the vague/inaccurate/sloppy description, I still need to get more familiar with the official terms. Thank you!


Visit "Hidden Services Manager" from your "Router Console" homepage or directly (with defaults): http://localhost:7657/i2ptunnelmgr

Configured by default are:

I2P HTTPS Proxy Port 4445
Outproxy: outproxy-tor.meeh.i2p
Description: HTTPS proxy for browsing eepsites and the web


I2P HTTP Proxy Port 4444
Outproxy: false.i2p
Description: HTTP proxy for browsing eepsites and the web

The outproxy listed is the server used to access clearnet. You can set up a Firefox extension such as SwitchyOmega to only use the i2p proxies on *.i2p domains.
