Fixed start menu. Fixed networking.

Autostart of Whonix-Setup-Wizard is broken on Whonix-Gateway. Please manually start it.

kdesudo whonix-setup-wizard setup

Whonix 14 makes many time synchronization issues visible. It fails on slow connections. You might have to edit /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/sdwdate/remote_times.py.

kdesudo kwrite /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/sdwdate/remote_times.py

Change from

seconds = 10


seconds = 50

This will be fixed by default in the next version of course, already is fixed in git.

Another way to get full torified network access is reloading Whonix firewall.

sudo whonix_firewall

You can see Whonix firewall status in journal

Whonix firewall runs in two different modes. After boot: timesync-fail-closed mode

OK: First run during current boot, therefore running in timesync-fail-closed mode.
OK: (Only local Tor control port connections and torified sdwdate allowed.)

Otherwise after sdwdate succeeded or after manually reloading Whonix firewall it runs in: full mode.

OK: Consecutive run during current boot, therefore running in full mode.
OK: (Full torified network access allowed.)

sdwdate-gui is hidden in systray by default. (bug) By right clicking on the systray you can enable showing it. A convenient way to look at sdwdate’s log is using the view log right click action of sdwdate-gui. There you can see the status of Whonix firewall mode as well.
