Testers wanted! Whonix 8.3 VPN-Firewall Feature

A new feature for VPN lovers has been added. VPN’s can now also be easily installed on Whonix-Gateway. Previously, many VPN users who wanted to route Tor through a VPN (user -> VPN -> Tor), preferred to install VPNs on the host and had little different choice. Some in conjunction with VPN-Firewall, to avoid connecting without the VPN, if the VPN (software) breaks down. Physical isolation users could not easily use a VPN on Whonix-Gateway and naturally had no host.

VPN-Firewall features have been added to Whonix-Gateway’s firewall in Whonix 8.3. network-manager-kde and OpenVPN is now being installed by default to aid users who want to hide Tor and Whonix from their ISP. As long as this feature is being tested, documentation can be found here:

Later, documentation will be moved here:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnel_Tor_through_proxy_or_VPN_or_SSH

Users who are not interested in VPNs won’t notice any changes. For example “iptables –list” won’t differer by default in Whonix 8.2 vs Whonix 8.3.
