I have downloaded the Tor package and have got NordVPN installed on a Kali Linux VM.

If I connect to NordVpn on the virtual Host, I can launch the Tor Browser Launcher without issue and connect to the Tor network. However, I'd like to keep everything containerized within my VM.

As such, I've installed the Nordvpn linux 64-bit Debian distro on my Kali VM. I run the command nordvpn connect, it goes through the motions, and it connects without fault, I can browse the internet within the VM, via the VPN.

However, once I've run nordvpn connect, Tor Browser will not launch. It will seemingly hang until I disconnect the VPN, it will at that point, open.

If I launch Tor browser prior to connecting the VPN, then connect the VPN, then click Connect within Tor browser, the application hangs showing the "Connect" button depressed.

...and nothing happens..
