Can't get tor connection in a second Workstation

I followed the manual and
1: set a new MAC for the new Workstation in VB
2. changed the last octet in /etc/network/interfaces
In whonixcheck I still get ERROR: Tor Boosttrap Result: Tor’s Control Port could not be reached. … (Code: 255)

Restarted network or rebooted?

Tried both, as the guide says.

You need to change the second workstation’s IP too.

[quote=“HulaHoop, post:4, topic:1230”]You need to change the second workstation’s IP too.[/quote]I changed only the second workstation’s internal IP.

It’s really a “second Whonix-Workstation”, i.e. a cloned or imported one?

Or is it a Whonix-Custom-Workstation? (https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Other_Operating_Systems)

For the latter the instructions are different. (https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Other_Operating_Systems#Easy_2)

Did you make sure, that they are using the same internal network [font=arial]Whonix[/font]?

Hi Patrick,
It’s imported one (wouldn’t want to clone a “used” one).

It’s a Whonix Workstation. I already used successfully a non Whonix OS with the gateway once in the past.

They are using the same internal network - Whonix.

Solved. Problem was I left a # comment at the end of a line in /etc/network/interfaces which due to a bug returns an error.
