There is no such option in JanusVM.

If your program goes through Tor, then the destination host will only see
the IP of the exit node.

If you connect the VPN to JanusVM, then used FreeCap, all the SOCKS traffic
from FreeCap would pass through Tor.

I installed JanusVPN using the Run.bat command that is provided inside

Firefox, Chrome, etc..) will pass traffic over Tor.

Feel free to e-mail me directly if you have any more trouble with it.
