I’m fairly new to Qubes and Whonix but have used other linux flavours for a long time.
I’m trying to set up user → Tor → VPN → Internet and in terms of VMs I have anon-whonix->sys-vpn->sys-whonix->sys-firewall->sys-net.
From inside sys-vpn there are no issues. I can also have a regular debian VM use sys-vpn, again with no issues. My problems arise when I use a whonix-ws VM.
I would not expect onion sites to work as this is impossible and I have installed librewolf. However even from terminal I am not getting a usable connection.
The problems appear to be DNS related. I can pull back pages for say 126.96.36.199 however nothing with a domain name.
I’ve disabled the uwt wrapper and dug through as much documentation as I can find but from what I can find it suggests that there should be no DNS issue.
I’ve updated resolv.conf to be the DNS of my VPN provider.
nslookup times out suggesting no servers can be reached
I’m a bit stuck. Any suggestions?
