Newbie question

Hi
i have just installed whonix after reading most of the documentation. I want to use putty as ssh client with the following structure
workstation->VPN->tor
First of all i use VPN on host machine.
Must i configure putty in proxy settings or whonix does the job for me?
Can i use local port forwarding in putty ( use 2 putty terminals) like this
workstation->VPN->tor->port forward for the second putty terminal?
Thanks

Set outgoing proxy settings is optional for better stream isolation.

Can i use local port forwarding in putty

Whonix doesn’t limit this.

like this
workstation->VPN->tor->port forward for the second putty terminal?

Terminology is ambiguous. Please use the same terminology for the
connection scheme as on
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Using_Tunnels_with_Whonix to prevent
misunderstandings.

Thanks for your quick reply.
workstation->VPN->tor-> "port forward"
I setup the first putty client to do local port forwarding ( -L 10000 10.20.30.40:22 for example) , and then use a second putty terminal for connecting to IP 10.20.30.40 using localhost:10000 .

So if i have undestood correctly i use putty as i did in windows without any changes (in proxy setting).
Can i use mysql gui clients or ftp client without also changing any proxy settings?
Thanks

USER -> VPN -> TOR -> SSH -> INTERNET is certainly possible.

Should be mostly work as per
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Support#Free_Support_Principle.

FTP is limited due to Tor. See
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO/FTP for
more information.
