Hello! Hope you’re doing well. Essentially, so did I, but it was not long before i’ve destroyed my evening trying to solve this, to say mildly, a bit strange task.To begin with, I want to assure those who had already thought of replying to this post with the warning - yes, I do acknowledge all the risk i’m going to introduce into my life, and i am 100% sure that it’s what i want to achieve.
So, these are inputs:
- An old PC i need to connect to the internet as secure as I can. I’ve already tried Tails and that definitely wouldn’t work here.
- Right next to it i have my beautiful test setup(linux host + several vm’s, including ready-to-use gateway).
What i did was: installed whonix-approved preconfigured debian distributive on PC #1, connected it to an available ethernet port on the PC #2, checked that configs
resolv.conf were suitable(aka had standart static ip settings that would help it find gateway) and tested two situations.
One, where i didn’t touch host settings at all, connected ethernet adapter straight to gateway(in QEMU-KVM, thats what i use), and, unsurprisingly, result wasn’t wery marvelous - in the end i needed all VM’s to be in a single internal network.
And second, where i tried my best to setup bridge connecting ethernet adapter and the exact network i needed - internal one - and, as you’ve probably already guessed, at least by me mentioning network’s title one more time, this had also failed.
My question is: what you think would be the most practical way to solve this puzzle, as i would really appreciate using this kind of setup in nearest future. Thank you for time that you’ve spent reading all this, and i would be glad to give any logs/configs that can help you understand my problem.
