Imported Workstation and Gateway appliances into Virtualbox (host OS: Ubuntu 17.04 [internet connection is fine, tor browser works fine]). Got all the way to update and dist-upgrade: all went well. Whonixcheck failed. “ping google.com” yields: “unknown host”. Both clocks are very wrong (Gateway: about 24 hours behind my time; Workstation: about 7 hours behind).
Tried right-clicking the clocks to “restart sdwdate - instantly adjust the time” - no luck, still way off.
So my big problems are that I don’t appear to be connected to the internet, the clocks are way off, and consequently the “tor bootstrap” test keeps failing. Any tips or tricks? Thanks.
