Hi. Since i use a VPN before whonix gateway on Windows 7, and those VPN KILL SWITCHES are not 100% safe, i found people that mentioned the alternative to force a VM to connect ONLY TROUGH THE WINDOWS VPN ADAPTER.
So, if vpn disconnects, and adapter goes down, the whonix gateway machine can not connect to internet.
In another forum, this is whoinix forum and you told me to look for the answer somewhere else.
There are some methods to do that (whonix gateway with w “kill switch like”) but i dont master them.
I did read some methods of messing with windows firewall to block any non vpn connections, including virtualbox, and that sounded complicated, including messing around with many programs.
Then i found 3 people that do that in a MEGA SIMPLE way, messing with adaptors in virtualbox.
Somehow, linking the NAT first virtualbox adapter to the VPN WINDOWS ADAPTER.
Anyway, i am not an expert but i remember you, patrick, some years ago, writing about “DONT USE BRIDGE, USE NAT” in whonix because was safer.
So, in the HOST>VPN>WHONIX scheme, whould be GREAT to teach us how to do that in a SAFE way.
Plus, you can add that to whonix docs, and more:
Since i did read in whonix documentation a warning about HOW TO CLEAN TOR ENTRY GUARD WHEN CHANGING LOCATION, to change vpn to HOME location, in case of a disconnect, we would also endanger disclosure.
So, please, is faster you teach us how to do that than write all that you did to tell me to find help somewhere else.
