Please post the full output of whonixcheck.[/quote]
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.
[quote=“Patrick, post:4, topic:1569”]So there is no…
"Tor’s control port could not be reached"
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.
