I’ve been having trouble for a couple days on how to configure my VPN. I’ve selected PIA, and I’m not sure where to start in Connecting to a VPN before Tor especially since they use risevpn as an example. Should I use this? https://helpdesk.privateinternetaccess.com/hc/en-us/articles/225274288-Which-encryption-auth-settings-should-I-use-for-ports-on-your-gateways- . Also I’m not sure where to install the config, the first time I installed in “Template: whonix-gw Konsole”, but somewhere I read I need to install the VPN Config on Debian/host also? Do I repeat steps just in separate Konsoles.
Don’t miss to read:
Combining Tunnels with Tor
It clearly recommends against installing the VPN config inside Whonix template.
Which outgoing port you use for the VPN doesn’t matter. Perhaps 443 goes easier through some restrictive firewalls.
Incoming ports: no need to open any.
Not also. It’s either or. Not both. Don’t use the same VPN provider / config in two places at once.
nothingonme did you try PIA linux client,confirming its working inside Workstation.
