This documentation is a crash course in anonymity and security on the Internet. Whonix is a technological means to anonymity, but staying anonymous is not just a technological problem. Anonymity is a complex problem without an easy solution. The more you know, the safer you can be.

Tunnel Support / Chaining Support

All kinds of tunnels are possible and tested to work with Whonix. With Whonix you can route a connection through a VPN, SSH, or proxy before Tor, after Tor, or both.

Using Tunnels with Whonix

Replacing Tor with something is possible as well, although only for some combinations and networks. It's partially done but don't hold your breath for seeing those features finished, see Other Anonymizing Networks.
