I have set up a VPN with openVpn on a VPS and have been connecting to it with the
Service Sys-net VM by running
$ sudo su
bash-5.0# openvpn client.ovpn
in the terminal every time I start Qubes.
First of all is there a better way to do this maybe a script I could use to automatically start the VPN on boot or is this even a proper way to do things I can’t figure out how to configure the VPN under the WiFi network manger in the top right where it lists " Add a VPN connection" is connecting though the Sys-net terminal suitable?
This is my main question though, when I go to other VMs it seems like the VPN is working properly when I check the IPs and the Sys-net is providing the networking like I intend. However when I start Whonix is there a way to ensure that my traffic is first being routed through the VPN then to Whonix?
Ideally I want it to be
Host – VPN – Whonix/Tor
In my Whonix AppVM the networking is listed as : sys-whonix (current)
If I try to change the networking to sys-net Whonix no longer connects to the internet.
