Tor Bootstrap Issue

I tried to install Tor Browser and got this message:
ERROR: Tor not fully bootstrapped.
Possible reasons:

  • no internet connectivity
    Please check:
    Start menu → System → systemcheck
    or in Terminal: systemcheck
    or in Terminal with debugging: systemcheck -v
    Run systemcheck on Whonix-Gateway as well.
    If systemcheck reports no problems with internet activity and downloading Tor Browser still fails, please report a bug!

I then ran the command and:
user@host:~$ systemcheck -v

ERROR: Tor Connection Result:

Possible issues:

  • Is the host’s internet connection working?
  • Whonix-Gateway will need a few moments for connecting to the Tor network.
  • Did you start Whonix-Gateway beforehand?
  • Network Obstacle

Recommendations:

Try again: Start Menu → System → systemcheck
or in Terminal: systemcheck
or more verbose in Terminal: systemcheck --verbose --gui --cli

Run systemcheck on Whonix-Gateway as well.


I entered systemcheck in both workstation and gateway.

I was using Tor Browser on the host while I was trying to use it in Whonix. Then I closed Tor browser but it didn’t make a difference. When I first downloaded Tor Browser on host I had to do it using a VPN as the Tor site was blocked. I tried using a VPN now on the host. Maybe I need a VPN inside Whonix in order to install Tor Browser? If so how would I do that as there is no other working browser?

No. Whonix-Gateway uses host system default network by default.

It’s unrelated, optional and would only add confusion at this stage: Combining Tunnels with Tor

Before attempting to make Tor Browser work inside Whonix-Workstation, first Tor inside Whonix-Gateway needs to be made to work.

Please try Tor Generic Bug Reproduction.

That is, if whonixcheck on Whonix-Gateway also shows Tor isn’t connected and none of the advice by whonixcheck helps to resolve the issue.
