Time Synch issue

Hello, I seem to have some problem (the same problem both on Gateway and Workstation) with fetching the time from TOR, that is: running the time syncronization monitor.

It gives me an error and just waits 10 minutes. Here the log taken from the gateway (I am using VirtualBox in MacOSX).

Thank you very much in advance for any help.

Hi iammeeoh

Is this a new Whonix install? If so did you verify the images?

You may need to set UTC time in Whonix manually.
