Gateway Rejecting Socks Requests

Gateway is Whonix 11 physical isolation gateway
Workstation is Windows 7 hosting Whonix 11 Workstation
TransPort and DNSPort have been disabled on the Gateway to prevent TransPort leaks from Windows

Whonix Workstation is working properly running in VirtualBox.
There are some programs that need to be run in the Windows host.

Use Tor Browser as an example. (Tor launcher has been disabled).
Proxifier is used to listen for traffic on 127.0.0.1: 9050,9051 and route to Socks5 proxy at 10.152.152.10: 9050,9051.
Gateway refuses the connection with WARN:
Rejecting SOCKS request for anonymous connection to private address [scrubbed].
Do I need to set up some type of authentication?
Or is there a setting that allows this connection?
TIA

Strange setup.
Do I need to set up some type of authentication?
No. Maybe something wrong with redirection. Such as message is also shown if a torified [by torsocks or so] curl tries to access a LAN IP. [Which is not possible. A torified client cannot reach LAN destinations. Therefore that message.]

Is this Polipo config file still available somewhere?

https://github.com/Whonix/Whonix/blob/master/whonix_workstation/etc/polipo/config
( https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/Design-Workstation#http_to_socks_converter )

Somewhere it the git history.

Would it be better to connect to polipo on workstation (127.0.0.1:8123) with:
socksParentProxy=10.152.152.10:9113
socksProxyType=socks5

or to put polipo on gateway (10.152.152.10:8123):
allowedClients=10.152.152.11
socksParentProxy=127.0.0.1:9113
socksProxyType=socks5

thanks.

Workstation.
