I am setting up Tor->VPN so I followed this Connecting to Tor before a VPN and deactivated all wrappers/removed Tor Browser proxy settings. Did not deactivate Misc Settings because I don’t think it’s necessary(is it?).
VPN connects successfully. I can ping ips, but apt-get doesn’t work and tor browser cannot connect.
Only issue in Whonix check is “could not check for software updates.”
I appreciate the help. I rechecked the instructions and made sure that uwtwrapper_global=“0” was added. Both of those commands you provided result in the same
"W: Failed to fetch"
Errors that I get when the updates fail.
Could this be due to the fact that I set TOR_TRANSPROXY=1 in /etc/environment? Or that I didn’t deactivate misc proxy settings?
When I use sudo route the first default gateway I get is 10.8.1.1, it’s tun0 so it should function as my VPN DNS server right? Not sure what I’m doing wrong because after adding that to /etc/resolv.conf, nslookup still does not work. I’ve tried other IPs returned by sudo route as well.
Ok awesome Patrick those corrections to the wiki fixed it
Only new warning with whonix check was "Whonix Meta Packages test Result: Whonix-Workstation detected that the meta package non-qubes-whonix-workstation is not installed
I assume I can probably ignore this^
And, now that my VPN is configured on the workstation, my IP, whenever I look it up, is the IP of the VPN server, however my connection is still torified by the gateway even though it appears this is not so from the Workstation, correct?
btw while we are at it just a few small typos I noticed on the wiki:
/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/50_openvpn-unpriv.conf <–the ‘-’ should be a '_'
the whonixcheck conf is 50_whonixcheck_user.conf not 50_user.conf
the uwt wrapper conf is 50_uwt_user.conf not 50_user.conf
