ExcludeNodes support

I want to exclude nodes from certain countries.

Does Whonix support ExcludeNodes option?
If so, the place I need to add this is in /etc/tor/torrc in Gateway like how I setup bridges?

Yes. Same as with system Tor. (Same as with the deb.torproject.org Tor deb package.)

I noticed after adding ExcludeNodes to Tor config. One warning line appears in Arm.

[ARM_WARN] The torrc differs from what tor’s using. You can issue a
sighup to reload the torrc values by pressing x.
- torrc value differs on line: 17

  • configuration values are missing from the torrc: HiddenServiceStatistics,

Is it safe to ignore this?

My config file

DisableNetwork 0

StrictNodes 1
ExcludeNodes {au}, {ca}, {nz}, {gb}, {us}

UseBridges 1
ClientTransportPlugin obfs2,obfs3 exec /usr/bin/obfsproxy managed
ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/bin/obfs4proxy managed

bridge obfs4 /snipped/
bridge obfs4 /snipped/

Yes. ( Control and Monitor Tor )
