Continuing the discussion from whonix, torrents, and being a good tor citizen:
Related [a "connect to other anonymity network than Tor directly" modification for Whonix-Gateway], FYI:
killyourtv managed to set up an I2PBOX. I.e. installing I2P
on the gateway and accessing it from the workstation. So users would be
using I2P directly rather than tunneling I2P through Tor.
I2PBOX - user -> i2p -> destination
[ without i2p over Tor (user -> Tor -> i2p -> destination) ]
Fist of all, thanks for this. However, I am wondering if you have had any recent success or even better, have any suggestions, as to how to patch whonix_firewall with the instructions from KillYourTV’s Whonix support page. I did not meet success.
I wonder if it’s because the instructions and patches are aimed at an older version of Whonix (and whonix_firewall). If so, perhaps there is a particular branch or tag to check out from one Git repository (most likely, the whonix_firewall git repo… but perhaps this is also necessary for his patch to his init startup scripts.
Basically, the patch here: http://killyourtv.i2p/howtos/whonix/i2p-whonix (I2P) or http://kytvi2pll2jw5gip.onion/howtos/whonix/whonix_firewall.patch
The instructions to apt-get install i2p likewise failed because the proper reference package is i2p-router.
And I didn’t get as far, but would not be surprised if all the instructions fail for Whonix 18.104.22.168.2.
