VPN/Setup/Tor Before VPN/sudoers configuration

From Whonix

Open file /etc/sudoers.d/tunnel_unpriv in an editor with root rights.

(Qubes-Whonix ™: In TemplateVM)

This box uses lxsudo for root privilege escalation and mousepad as editor. These are examples. Other tools could archive the same goal too. If these example tools do not work for you or if you are not using Whonix, please see this link.

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix ™ with XFCE, run.

lxsudo mousepad /etc/sudoers.d/tunnel_unpriv

If you are using a terminal-only Whonix, run.

sudo nano /etc/sudoers.d/tunnel_unpriv

Edit the file so the text looks looks like the following code block.

Note: This might include removing comments (#) and adding text. Do not remove the lines with the double hashes (##).

tunnel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /bin/ip
tunnel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/openvpn *
Defaults:tunnel !requiretty
Defaults:tunnel env_keep += script_type
Defaults:tunnel env_keep += dev

Save and exit.
