Why this is happening when i try to ping in terminal?
" ping site
PING site (216.58.214.14) 56(84) bytes of data.
From X (X) icmp_seq=1 Destination Port Unreachable
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted "

Also, if using permission-hardening (currently not the default), the CAP_NET_RAW capability will be removed from ping to reduce attack surface since it wouldn’t work anyway: https://github.com/Whonix/anon-apps-config/blob/master/etc/permission-hardening.d/30_ping.conf
