Tor help desk roundup
---------------------

Users of different VPN (Virtual Private Network) services have told the help desk 
that Tor Browser has difficulty connecting to Tor when a VPN is in use. Using Tor 
with a VPN is not supported. For a trusted entry into the Tor network, bridges and 
Pluggable Transports are recommended. For anonymizing all network traffic coming 
from a computer, Tails is recommended.
