Thanks. I thought of same. So, the vpn and tor operate in different levels as
per OSI model right? I think vpn works in a lower level than tor and that is why
the tor is forced to route via vpn?

Also, how should I configure my "openvpn-client-service" for this? All I have is
".ovpn" file from my vpn provider. Can you please guide with a code snippet?
