Cant Connect to Tor network


Hi , i did a debian update on the gateway today and now i get this message when i run a check on the workstation and i cannot connect to the tor network. ( i could before the update). Gateway is definitely running , the check on gateway is successful , im only running 1 workstation and ive re ran the check multiple times but no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

ERROR: Tor Bootstrap Result:
Tor’s Control Port could not be reached!


  • Confirm that Whonix-Gateway is running.
  • Run whonixcheck on Whonix-Gateway and confirm success.
  • If you’re running multiple Whonix-Workstations simultaneously, confirm that separate IP addresses are configured (see https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Multiple_Whonix-Workstations).
  • Rerun whonixcheck here in this Whonix-Workstation.

Good day,

What kind of hypervisor are you using?

Have a nice day,



u r most likely using whonix 13 + vbox 15. welll sorry to tell u that whonix facing too much load and difficulties which need more ppl to help and support whonix developing. so until that happen whonix will work and support the new upgrades to the vbox (or any other virtualization). so in short whonix for vbox is dead until the next upgrade. sorry again for any uncomfortablity.

(Note:- any new installation for whonix inside the vbox = whonix-gw wont connect at all)
