Hey there, I am a bit late to this thread; figured to leave some suggestions here.

 

TailsOS doesn't recommend or support the installation of a VPN within it's operating system. You can look at their main website for more details: https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/vpn_support/

 

If you want to use VPN + TailsOS together, you should consider running TailsOS within VirtualBox/VMware as a guest, whilst having TorGuard client installed on your main host operating system. This way, you won't have to jeopardize the security of Tails and waste countless hours upon reversing permission/firewall settings that were put in place.

 

Another way is setting up your router to use TorGuards VPN, which would be the easiest way to use VPN & TOR together.

 

Virtual Machine software:

  • www.virtualbox.org -- recommended
  • www.vmware.com

 

If you still wish to attempt to install VPN in Tails, you could try the following(Not recommended):

  1. TailsOS & Ubuntu is based on Debian, so therefore you should be able to install the Ubuntu Torguard client: https://torguard.net/downloads.php
  2. You can install openvpn from cmdline manually with: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install openvpn  --  Then download the TorGuard OpenVPN configs from the download page.

You'll likely run into permission/firewall issues, which will require you to manually edit things and essentially undermine the security of TailsOS. It's not impossible, just the process of going about it this way is en-cumbersome.
