Monero GUI and CLI question

So I’ve a question, would enabling Socks5 Proxy ( in GUI mask my IP when connected to a remote node and making transactions or would I have to use CLI and configure it in terminal?

DNS_PUBLIC=tcp TORSOCKS_ALLOW_INBOUND=1 torsocks monerod --p2p-bind-ip --no-igd --hide-my-port
torsocks monero-wallet-gui
torsocks monero-wallet-cli

GUI should be fine, but someone more knowledgeable will confirm.

Is this a Whonix-related question ?

Inside of Whonix-workstation you do not need to set the usual Tor SOCKS5 proxy since everything is forced to go through Whonix-gateway.

You don’t need to do anything. Your IP is masked no matter what you do in the workstation.

Simplified: Stream isolation is about details. Not about IP masking. See:
