I’m using VPN on host, then I run whonix and (at the moment) use ssh to connect to my server. Some time ago I connected to VPN and then fired up my whonix gateway, and after 10 seconds or so my workstation, as I normally do.
At that time VPN connection dropped saying my credentials are not valid and to enter them again. Not wanting my ISP to see I’m using TOR I quickly canceled whonixcheck and timesync that were going on in both VM’s at that moment. Took some fiddling (turning on and off etc) with VPN to get it working, it reset to default settings but was on. I then proceeded to run whonixcheck and timesync manually on both gateway and workstation, and after successfully done, connected to my server over ssh. Everything seemed as usual.
Upon logging back to same server today, it showed my last login was from my VPN’s server and not a TOR node (as it normally is).
Never connected to it from anything other than workstation so VPN ip should have never been seen by server. Needless to say it freaked me out. What could be possible reason for this? Had I not used VPN I’m guessing it would have shown my ISP’s IP and thats a no-no as we all know.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
