Could you explain it with some code from a configuration file as an example?

I too wish to get an answer to this so it would be easy for somebody
non-technical to wrap their head around it. I'm currently doing
as root from the desktop and then running tor after it and configuring
icecat afterwards to connect to TOR

Hello Guix!

1) How to use tor over vpn? That is, my system should connect to tor
network via
2) Should I enable both tor-service-type and openvpn-client-service?
3) Do tor and vpn operate on same level as per OSI model?

Thank you!


I think if you activate both services, it will work. Openvpn creates a
new virtual network device that gets its own ip and network
configuration. It's configured to go through your actual device via
routes. Tor will simply try to communicate with another server on the
internet. If openvpn has configured your computer to have a default
route through the vpn, then tor connection will have no choice but to
go through the vpn. Does it make sense?

You can check what your routes are with "ip r".
