Tor's control port could not be reached

I am getting this same error suddenly and consistently today, also from within Workstation. “Tor’s control port could not be reached”, etc…

I haven’t changed anything, it just started occurring. Tor bootstrap test still says connected to Tor, and http://check.torproject.org reports connected to Tor.

But Whonixcheck produces this error each time I’ve restarted Workstation so far, today.

What virtualizer / platform?

Please post the full output of whonixcheck.

Sorry Patrick… the full output was exactly identical to the text posted by new2this in the other thread. I was just paraphrasing with what I typed. I am not at my Whonix machine right now, and am not sure how to copy and paste the output from the Whonixcheck popup dialog. But was this:

I am using KVM under Linux Mint. The problem did seem to go away the last time I restarted last night, so perhaps it was just transient as you say, and self-resolved after the Tor network corrected the issue.

So there is no…
"Tor’s control port could not be reached"
Error?

I don’t think so… I was just remembering that version from another error months ago, I think, and typing it hastily in a rush. It was the same as the other user’s error, TransPort rather than control port. But it has since gone away and I haven’t seen it again, so I can’t check for sure. Probably just a temporary network/Tor issue.
