It’s a moot point so long as I only want to protect my real IP though right? I just don’t have a good understanding of proxies and tunneling so I got confused when I saw the option.
I think I’ve got a working setup but I wanted to check about a couple more things to be sure. I’m connecting to the VPN using the config file, no proxy, and the connection starts fine. Then I’m opening Tor Browser with this command:
TOR_TRANSPROXY=“1” UWT_DEV_PASSTHROUGH=“1” torbrowser
Looks like it’s all working, but I have two questions.
It says in the documentation that Tor Browser should give a warning that Tor is disabled. The VPN provider still can’t see my real IP though right?
Also, in the documentation where it says the TOR_TRANSPROXY=“1” environment variable change can’t be undone, is that true for all of the methods you give, or only for the last one where you edit the /etc/environment file? So when I just add the line to the torbrowser command like I’m doing now, does this also make a change that can only be undone by redownloading the browser?
