Problems setting up (User → Tor → VPN → Internet)

I’ve followed the guide but when opening Tor browser there’s no connection at all.

“sudo systemctl status openvpn@openvpn” gives me the following result, the closest thing to an error that I could find in all the commands. Does this look right?

user@host:~$ sudo systemctl status openvpn@openvpn

“Has the VPN configuration been modified aside from the instructions on this page?” I only changed the ip and port and CA cert name to match my chosen VPN.

“Is Whonix currently configured to use a second tunnel-link/proxy or bridge?” No.

Hi openerms9

Welcome to the Whonix community!

Sorry to hear you’re having problems with your VPN. Did you follow the steps to Prevent Bypassing of the Tunnel-link? Did you modify the openvpn.conf to reflect you VPN service providers .ovpn configuration file?

For example does your provider use UDP or TCP in the .opvn configuration file?

Yes i’ve removed stream isolation by disabling uwt wrappers, tor browser proxy with environment method, and the other miscellaneous proxy settings exactly as described in the Wiki you linked using the non-qubes route.

I modified the openvpn.conf only changing the IP, port, and certificate file name of the VPN. The rest was copied directly from the wiki (TCP included) (Which my provider uses).
However i did remove the line “## using nyc.vpn.riseup.n et 80”. Is that important to replace?

Also “/etc/resolv.conf” is empty.
