Could someone clarify one part of the very helpful Whonix documentation on “What’s the difference of installing a VPN on the host vs. Whonix-Gateway”.
In the “you must ask yourself” section it says the following:
“What should your VPN provider be able to see? All traffic? Then install the VPN on the host.”
Could someone elaborate on what “All traffic” means in this case. Does this mean the VPN can potentially log all of the follow information even though I’m going from the VPN into my Torified Whonix-Gateway:
-the specific destination URLs I’m reaching?
-all activity between me and my destination web sites (details on file downloads from sites, details on whether I posted to a site, etc.)?
Also, I assume there’s no way to utilize a VPN while hiding my real IP address from the VPN, (i.e. it won’t work to use Ubunto with Tor -> VPN -> Whonix-Gateway -> destination) ?
