Is there any limit that you will hit by having several different workstations (running arbitrary OSes) connecting through the same Whonix gateway via transparent proxying?
I ask because I’ve got 4 VMs connecting through the gateway and the connectivity seems erratic, both for outgoing and incoming connections. For the outgoing connections, one machine will sometimes be unable to resolve names or to reach the outside Internet at all, for no obvious reason.
For incoming connections to one of my machines which is running a web server, which I try to access over Tor using the address configured on the gateway, and even though the web server is running perfectly locally, the Tor browser returns a 504 Gateway Time-out.
These problems are sporadic though, because sometimes it will randomly start working again, and it’s not predictable which VM will be affected when. I’ve had a VM running for a week trying every day to do an “apt get update” and it won’t resolve the name of the apt archive, then suddenly out of the blue it works. Same with the incoming connections.
So it seems like I am hitting a resource limit somewhere, clogging up the gateway’s ability to serve workstations via the transparent proxying. Is this possible?
