thanks! seems as though VPN works.
That depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Is the reason for the VPN to hide your Tor usage?
Have a nice day,
Unless you take precautions to block outgoing traffic when your vpn disconnects on the host, your tunneling efforts will be useless. You are better off using the VPN on the gateway since its designed with these scenarios n mind rather than reinventing the wheel yourself.
Note that hinding Tor use from advanced adversaries with a VPN is futile since they can fingerprint SSL traffic.
