My Workstation is an already existing Devuan installation that has been set-up to use the Whonix-Gateway from the instructions here: Anonymize Other Operating Systems
It works! All traffic is being routed through Tor on the Workstation.
For management purposes though, trying to SSH into the Workstation from the gateway, as described here: File Transfer - Whonix
does not work.
iptables -S on workstation:
-P INPUT ACCEPT
-P FORWARD ACCEPT
-P OUTPUT ACCEPT
(yes I know this is bad, this is for debugging purposes and temporary)
sshd is running and is on port 22, just password authentication (usually I use keys but again, temporary for debugging)
When I attempt to SSH from the gateway into the workstation with
/usr/bin/ssh.anondist-orig email@example.com I get a flat out Connection refused.
nmap -p22 10.152.152.12 shows
22/tcp closed ssh
Whats going on here? Why is the port closed? I know its very much open. If I try to SSH to a non-existant IP, say 10.152.152.224, I get a timeout error so the workstation is definitely reachable, but for some reason not SSH-able
