So I've tested T.A.I.L.S, it comes with sshfs pre-installed. It's also really easy to use. It looks like all the traffic goes through T.O.R. Next step will to see if it works with the University's wifi.
I've been asked to do a talk on it.
I'm also going to do some write ups on the options I didn't use and why I didn't want to use them.
