Whonix 9

Hey Patrick

Till now, i used whonix gateway 8.2 + win xp or win7 and everything works good

I downloaded whonix 9, made updates via apt-get update apt-get upgrade, all updates downloaded, whonixcheck shows that all is updated and there is connected to TOR but on second system (win xp or win7) there is no connection. I havent found this problem on forum on known issues so i post now

Besides, after all updates with whonix 9.3 there is red “failed” when gateway starts about apparmor parser or something. Should it be like this?

If i use whonix 8,2 now, is it unsafe?

IP's changed. So you need to redo network settings for custom workstations according to: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Other_Operating_Systems
Besides, after all updates with whonix 9.3 there is red "failed" when gateway starts about apparmor parser or something. Should it be like this?
Probably this? https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Download#AppArmor_Warning_during_Boot
If i use whonix 8,2 now, is it unsafe?
8.x is deprecated and it's common recommendation in software to not rely on deprecated software for security.

Thanks for fast reply

problem like here:

If i install casino software on VM - win xp or win7 (+ socks5), is there more possible to track my real identity?

The short answer is probably: nevermind.
The longer one: https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,668

The short answer is: "more possible", yes, I think ideally best off if we all share a common config. The longer answer, to which degree and such, is quite a complex one: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Documentation

sorry my english is quite low so im not sure am i understood good. you propose to NOT install any software on VM because my real identity can be dangerous?

Sorry to say, without good English you’re at disadvantage understanding these nuances.

yes i know, you can just reply for my last question man and i will understand all xd

It’s a question that can only be answered with a nuanced answer. There is no way to make it a yes/no answer.

Ok i understand now. Thank you for your help and for all your work.

I wonder, can we share the risk of identity for two cases.
1 - connection
2 - user behaviour

mainly, can we say that identity is risked because of user behaviour (for example same usernames, same style of writing etc) but not for connection?

I understand, we can connect some correlation of time, hardeware or sth between main OS and VM, but if useing completly other hardware when connect with Whonix, and never connect two worlds (anonymous and non anonymous) can we relay on whonix gateway connection?

If you count https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO#Protocolleaks as “user behavior”, yes.

This past Saturday I did an update/upgrade on both gateway and workstation per (20141101-07:49:19 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade). Today both gateway/workstation are still at 8.2.

Are instructions (https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_8_to_Whonix_9) missing a step for both upgrades?

Suggestions?

Thx

No, I don’t think anything is missing because many users succeeded with these instructions.

I tried to manually upgrade twice from release 8 to 9 per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_8_to_Whonix_9#Upgrading_Whonix-Workstation verbatim but both times failed identically. After upgrading and restarting both gateway and workstation VMs, neither VM could connect to TOR network. Icons were blank in start menus for whonixcheck and whonixsynch. When I clicked on them nothing happens. Each time I reverted back to original 8.x state prior to upgrade.

I downloaded ~.ova’s for release 9 instead. Again, tried to follow instructions per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/File_Transfer#Transfer_files_from_the_Whonix_Workstation_into_a_different_Whonix-Workstation_through_a_VDI_file. Got as far as instantiating a VDI on workstation 8.x and transferring my data to it successfully. However, I cannot mount the VDI to workstation 9.x. Followed instructions to copy VDI via virtualbox media manager, and added copy to workstation 9.x storage configuration. When I start workstation 9.x it does not recognize ‘sdb1’ ergo I cannot mount.

hints/suggestions/help welcome!

thx in advance
