I’m trying to get DarkMX working in Whonix 16 workstation. It can work with an external Tor client but it requires the “external Tor cookie file” which I take to mean the control_auth_cookie. (Here’s a screenshot of the config menu.) I tried searching the wiki and forums but nothing seemed relevant. I tried setting CookieAuthFile in the Gateway to try copying it over but nyx crashed and complained it couldn’t find /var/lib/tor/control_auth_cookie. I tried resetting Gateway from snapshot (I’m using Virtualbox) and looked for that file but it doesn’t exist.
I don’t really know what to do, I’m not familiar enough with Whonix’s setup to know if this is possible or not.
EDIT: I noticed there’s /run/tor/control_auth_cookie in Workstation, but DarkMX appears unable to set this file, perhaps because it doesn’t own it. I tried copying the file but that doesn’t appear to work either.
