you might try asking OVH support about the t&c, i just know that proxies usually attract un-wanted traffic which will break the t&c for sure.
central ? non-exit? have no clue what that is ... good luck with that mate!
FYI, an exit node allows traffic outside of the Tor network, allowing users relative anonymity on the internet. If you run a Tor node with an exit policy that does not permit any traffic, all connections made will only be to other Tor nodes. All traffic on Tor goes through three nodes before it reaches its destination; if you are not an exit node, your configuration acts as an entry or 'central' node. This way, there is no way* for your server's IP address(es) to be implicated in abusive uses of the Tor network.

*Almost no way.

cheers unclebob, don't know why that didn't come up.

it's mostly just an intellectual question regarding whether it can work, not sure i'm THAT bothered about helping them out

and yonaton, you're right it is slow, but it's not necessarily about the performance, it's a proof of concept. it's nice to know that it is possible to be close to anonymous in this day and age. even if it isn't perfect

I ran a non-exit Tor node for over a year without hearing a peep out of OVH.

was asking more on the 'running a tor relay' side rather than looking for proxy, as a search didn't come up with any tor related posts.

a central, non-exit node would only produce encrypted traffic, no sensitive requests and nothing i can see which will void the t+c's above ...?

If you need a proxy,
Install a Squid Cache and configure proper ACL + user/password facility.
tor is just pure rubbish.

It depends.

We don't like TOR no.
