I’m trying to separate work activities on different whonix workstations, but I’m confused about the correct setup.
After studying the documentation:
I came up with three ways to use Whonix Workstation
- Using multiple WS with different IP addresses and one GW.
Cons - it’s not safe to use a common bridge to run multiple WS at the same time.
- Creating a separate internal bridge for each WS with one GW.
Disadvantages - more complicated configuration.
- Using a separate GW for each WS.
Pros - doesn’t have all the above problems.
Which option is safer to use?
The documentation says that you can not use multiple WS at the same time, does this apply only to option 1 or also to options 2 and 3? If for all options, then it turns out that I also shouldn’t use other virtual machines at the same time when working with WHONIX?
The documentation refers to:
it talks about authentication for the local network, does this only apply to point 1 of my question? When using different internal networks in points 2 and 3, these authentication steps are not needed?
