How to change the IP in tor whonix gateway, not tor browser?

#1

I want to change the IP of the exit node in a tor whonix gateway. Is there a file with which I can achieve the same? Or any idea on how to do it? I am trying to change the IP of the tor in a browser, but don’t know how the IP of the exit node is created.

Who creates the IP for the exit node? Is it a proxy server?

Hi Christy945, Welcome to the Whonix forum!

You can set the exit node in your torrc.

sudo nano /usr/local/etc/torrc.d/50_user.conf

Add the exit node(s)

ExitNodes node, node,...
