I am following the above guide to integrate a sys-net vm dedicated for a single vpn connection. The guide calls this section, “Set up a ProxyVM as a VPN gateway using NetworkManager”.
When I get to step 4, and attempt to edit
and add lines to the file, I cannot do so bc qubes does not allow root user. This is intentional for security reasons as far as I know. The guide does not mention how I circumvent this when telling me to edit the files, which is strange and I am sure other users have much confusion with these guides.
Q: How to execute file modifications without allowing/breaking root security privileges?
Q: Can I live without these two modifications of text files?
Q: How often do failures occur when using VPN’s connected through a dedicated ProxyVM? Is failsafe necessary?
