Im new here and i wanna say first that Whonix is really awesome. A masterpiece!
But here is the reason why i opened this thread.
I testet the possibility to route Tor through a SSH tunnel which is running on the Host system.
Therefore i followed the manual on https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnel_Tor_through_proxy_or_VPN_or_SSH#Tunnel_Tor_through_SSH
But it seems there are 2 little, but serious, mistakes in it.
I fixed it that way.
Terminal on the host:
ssh -D 1080 your.ssh.serverI changed that to
ssh -g -D 1080 your.ssh.server-g Allows remote hosts to connect to local forwarded ports.
Root terminal on the host:
ifconfig -aThe eth0 network interface has an address like 192.168.1.10 So i changed the instruction for the torrc file on the Gateway to
## In case SSH tunnel has been setup from Whonix-Gateway. Socks5Proxy [b]192.168.1.10 [/b]:1080 ## In case SSH tunnel has been setup on the host. #Socks5Proxy IP:PORTNow it works!
I tested it with success too.
The webbrowser in the workstation worked fine till i closed the SSH tunnel on the host. The Tor browser wasnt working anymore, till to the moment i activated the SSH tunnel again.
Hope my feedback is welcome and correct.
