I have configured a sys-vpn for my qubes using this tutorial:
“Set up a ProxyVM as a VPN gateway using iptables and CLI scripts”
I then set my sys-whonix vm to connect through the sys-vpn and it works perfectly.
Now I wish to take it a few steps further. I have my socks5 connection info from my VPN provider. What is the best practice for using socks5? Do I simply update my existing openvpn-config in my sys-vpn vm to use the socks5 connection instead of the regular one?
Also, I’ve been reading about obfs4 bridges. What is best practice for implementation of that? Can this be done in addition socks5? Part of my goal is to also avoid all relays and bridges which are in the US, is that possible?
Lastly, I’m trying to figure out how to configure my sys-whonix from attempting to connect to ANY clearnet url for any reason. Is this done at the vm level, template level, or Tor browser level, and how do I do that?
