Ok so my nat adapter settings are fine and I can confirm the uplink works in a different machine.
TOR is also not blocked since whonix 16 works fine in virtualbox.
However. When using Whonix 16 in vmware and setting the right static ip’s and disabling “EXIT_ON_UNSUPPORTED_VIRTUALIZER”
Whonix Gateway still does not wan’t to connect to TOR for some reason.
This worked fine with Whonix 15 and before so what changed?
I’m not sure what’s wrong here.
I noticed at least one other person having the same problem in the comment section of this youtube video
