I am relatively new to Tor/Linux/Whonix

My goal in mind is to add bridges to my sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc

I keep getting errors saying basically I can't reach the host servers of these bridges. Then I go to take a look at my tor off a fresh boot. I use sudo netstat -plnt | fgrep 9050

It shows 2 different tcp running and I'm not sure what this means. I have looked extensively online with many of the same question but not any answers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Good day,

You'll have to run "whonixsetup" after adding your bridges to torrc and reload Tor afterwards.

Either way, going through this should help you get along nicely: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Bridges#How_to_use_bridges_in_Whonix

Have a nice day,
