Where are the network XML's?


I am following the instructions here trying to set up the gateway, and it is telling me to type these commands into terminal:

virsh -c qemu:///system net-define external_network*.xml
virsh -c qemu:///system net-define internal_network*.xml

The instructions say these xml files should be in the gateway folder that I decompressed, but when i decompressed it I only get two files:


Does anyone know where I might be able to find the missing files?


Good day,

Did you verify that the integrity of the downloaded files isn’t corrupted?

Have a nice day,



That is from section “New Settings for Whonix 14+” which does not apply yet.


Thanks for the fast replies. I did not verify the downloads, will do that now.

After going back to the instructions for up to version 13, I see it says to enter this command:

virsh -c qemu:///system net-define Whonix_network*.xml

I cannot see a Whonix_network*.xml file. I will verify the download and make sure it isn’t corrupted.


I verified the download and the signature is good. I’m still not sure where to find the network XML.


Its included in the gateway archive.
