First of all i wanna say a big THANKS to all the people that are making something like Whonix possibile. I’m searching a good way to protect my anonymity. I’ve tried a lot of stuff, learned a lot, failed a lot, and finally discovered Whonix
Hope you project can grow as much as possible… and i hope i can donate some btc to you guys.
I’m trying to setup my project like this:
Host: Ubuntu Live on USB stick with persistance
Host > VPN > Whonix > Sock5
Right now i’m following this steps:
Boot my live usb
Start VPN service and connect to foreign server
- Check for any DNS leak here > https://www.dnsleaktest.com/
- Check my ip with an ip extended check here > http://whoer.net/extended
Start VBox with bot Gateway & Workstation of Whonix
And starting Tor Browser.
I do every step every time i boot my usb. Also i have a protection that makes possibile to put offline the ISP connection if the VPN gets down. AND, just for sure, i put the original pc’s host on hybernate mode to make it harder to access the data in it.
Now, 3 questions;
Am i doing it good here?
How can i do Whonix > SOCK5? I’ve installed redsocks as seen in your documentation but i don’t really know how to use it.
Is it possibile this setup? user > 1st VPN > Whonix with gateway working with another 2nd VPN service+Tor > SOCK5
