Using Tor and VPN together

I would like to know what your opinions are on combining Tor and VPN? I know this is a hotly debated issue and the Whonix documentation does not recommend combining the two. As for me it I prefer to always have a VPN running (I use a VPN router) so I don’t forget to connect when I am not using Tor. I am not technical enough to set up a VPN connection dedicated solely to non-whonix appVMs.

Hi @bill, there’s a related discussion here:

I wasn’t aware of the distinction in observable IPs. That’s good to know. However, I tried to build a dedicated VPN but struggle with the notion: will it only work for a dedicated domain or can it be used for other VMs, if it’s built with openVPN? Is ironman a readily available VPN domain?
