ERROR on whonix check on workstation

Ok my gateway went though whonixcheck fine, but this is the 2nd time I have gotten this error on the workstation after whonixcheck. Please advise here is the error:

NFO: Whonix is produced independently of, with no guarantee from, The Tor Project. Whonix is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. https://www.whonix.org
INFO: SocksPort Test Result: Connected to Tor. IP: 171.25.193.131
ERROR: TransPort Test Result: Tor’s TransPort was not reachable. (curl exit code: [6] - [Couldn’t resolve host. The given remote host was not resolved.])
(If you disabled Tor’s TransPort, please disable this check, see whonixcheck /etc/whonix.d/30_whonixcheck_default configuration file.)
ERROR: Stream Isolation Test: Skipped, because TransPort test failed! Can not test stream isolation.

Please read https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Trust to understand the risk. If you want to change this, use:
Start menu -> Applications -> System -> Whonix Repository

If it’s a transient error - nevermind.

[quote=“Otto Kratik, post:1, topic:1569”]I am getting this same error suddenly and consistently today, also from within Workstation. “Tor’s control port could not be reached”, etc…

I haven’t changed anything, it just started occurring. Tor bootstrap test still says connected to Tor, and http://check.torproject.org reports connected to Tor.

But Whonixcheck produces this error each time I’ve restarted Workstation so far, today.[/quote]

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The error I was getting from Whonixcheck was identical in every way to the text posted above by new2this. Exact same text, to the letter. That’s why I replied to this thread rather than starting a new one.

The problem did seem to go away the last time I restarted last night, so perhaps it was just transient as you say, and self-resolved after the Tor network corrected the issue.

"Tor’s TransPort was not reachable.“
is different from
"Tor’s control port could not be reached”

Yes… my mistake.
