Are the following assumptions correct?
whonix-gw isolates traffic from whonix-ws by its SocksPort. This only works when software in whonix-ws is configured to use different SocksPorts (as outlined in the wiki: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Stream_Isolation).
A VM not based on whonix-ws normally won’t utilize SocksPorts; whonix-gw will treat all traffic as it would with TransPort traffic from whonix-gw, i.e. it will as use the same circuit (while the traffic of each VM as a whole is isolated).
Now how would isolation by SocksPort need to be implemented for VMs not based on whonix-ws? Do they communicate with whonix-gw in the same way as whonix-ws? Would configuring an application to use a SocksPort be enough?
Does whonix-gw treat all non-proxied traffic as TransPort traffic and SocksPort traffic as, well, that?
I’m sure there’s is a clear answer to this somewhere in the wiki. However, I have been searching for it for quite some time without success. Is this documented anywhere?
