after installing everything from scratch this are the results.
what i noticed
the whonix gateway stays on 5% boot strap just like before.
after that didnt work out i installed a windows guest and tested it with the default network then i used the “external” from whonix template both had same results.
As default the virtual networks on the virtual machines are setup as “virtio” made a test with that setting but in windows guest at least doesnt show any adapter on the adapter list, with this config the guest pings the “192.168.122.1” but is unable to ping the host: “192.168.122.9” also doesnt do any dns lookup.
but then i shut down and setup the virtualnetwork device model: rtl8139 after starting the windows guest again: there is an adapter on the list but showing as limited connectivity.
It does dns lookups i ping google.com and it does resolves the ip but gets “request time out”
It can ping the gateway: “192.168.122.1” but retunrs host unreachable when pinging host ip: “192.168.122.9”
but host can ping guest ip: “192.168.122.84”
made a install with this image ‘https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/#stable’ the 650mb one
fresh install formating root partition and home partition on that disk, then went straight to the step by step on “https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM”
i dont know what else can i do to make it work i think is kinda odd bug or related to hardware somehow. this the 3rd time i run a fresh install + whonix guide.
i know this is not related to whonix fully but honestly need help to solve this mistery.
Thanks in advance.
I found virtIO drivers in the iso installed in the guest machine… now the device model VirtIO shows on guest as Ethernet3 Redhad VirIO Driver but still wont connect.
Also there is a difference between the “default” KVM network and the “external” from the whonix template…
the default resolves dns and pings 192.168.122.1 and it can be pinged from host but it cannot ping host from guest.
the external doesnt ping anything neither resolves dns and the return on pings is network unrechable.
This feels like a iptables problem.
i found this “https://serverfault.com/questions/443147/kvm-virtual-machine-unable-to-access-internet” which seens to be like the problem i have but i honestly dont understand which is the “guest-subdomain”
