First of all, I am the biggest newbie, but I Am learning how to use Whonix. Recently, I have been trying to get VPN working through Tor. after running ‘sudo openvpn --config config.ovpn’ I get no errors and the last message reads ‘Initialization sequence completed’. But when I open tor browser, I see I am still using tor and my ip is not the one from vpn.
I read alot and came across something about removing all proxy settings, which I have no idea how to do. I tried to look into it and figure out how to do this but couldnt figure it out. Also i came across enabling TransPort instead of socksPort, which I am not sure how to do.
Please note I was using tor on windows and now i have learned about whonix and would like to use this instead of windows. Please be patient with me as I have very little knowledge in these matters.
Thank you for your help.
Here is the output after running openvpn.
