If you are using a graphical Whonix-Gateway, complete the following steps:
kdesudo kate filename
If you are using a terminal-only Whonix-Gateway, complete the following steps:
sudo nano filename
I have questions. What is “Custom-Whonix”? Is it Whonix-Gateway? In which virtual machine to modify the Whonix Network Configuration? Whonix-Gateway, Whonix-Custom-Workstation, or Custom-Whonix?
This doc page is about using the standard Whonix-Gateway with Workstations that are running Other Operating Systems.
Whonix Gateway should not be changed at all. Your Workstations need to be modified to work with Gateway. Therefore, your Workstations are “custom” Workstations, since they are not your standard, default Workstation.
(I don’t see “custom-whonix” or “custom whonix” anywhere on that page.)
You are correct! The documentation page is confusing (the wrong template was used in the “configure networking” section). Correction has been submitted. The file you want to edit is /etc/network/interfaces
So changing the wiki template may not be trivial since the template still has to make sense for the other pages where it currently is in use. Solutions could be to parameterize the template or to use a different template or no more template.
In respective distro’s documentation. Search “popular-linux-distro set static ip”. Examples are provided in Whonix docs for convenience - but network config is up to each distro, not Whonix. You can see from the examples what parameters to set.
I don’t like the format of the “expand” mechanism. Too easy to miss when your eye is following down the left…
