I am aware that the documentation recommends using Tor Browser in Whonix Workstation. I am also aware of the countless discussions on the forums where moderators/Whonix staff firmly state that it is best to use Tor Browser in Whonix-Workstation (for max anonymity, safety, etc).
However… the documentation also states,
“If browsers other than Tor Browser are used in Whonix ™, the IP address and Domain Name Service (DNS) requests are still protected.”
I was testing out Chrome on Whonix Workstation and through various browser tests my REAL local IP is showing up on webRTC leaks. Has this happened to anyone before and what is the threat having your local IP revealed?
The Qubes VM Configuration:
Chrome on whonix-ws → sys-whonix → sys-corridor → sys-VPN → sys-firewall → sys-net
note: Running this configuration with Tor Browser I found no leaks on any of the browser tests listed in the documenation, nor in any of the advanced --leak tests.
