I’m trying to use My Whonix VM and my Android x86 VM (attached to internal network) to communicate with each other but when I try to set my static IP in the android emulator terminal it tells me the interface (eth0) does not exist. I tried adding the Static IP and mask to other interfaces like wlan_eth on both x86 nougat and a more reason version of the emulator but can’t get it to work.
You could also use android proxy settings - but if these will really use the proxy for everything or not - I haven’t checked. If I seriously needed this and wanted it to be leak-free (reasonably certain the proxy will be used), I’d create a ProxyBOX.
Is there any interface showing up at all? Maybe a driver issue, so try changing the adapter of the VM to virtio,e1000,rtl* depending on what is currently in use.
Normal Android does not support each ethernet device out of the box, probably also true for the x86 version?
Enable Wi-Fi from Android Settings menu. Now Wi-Fi will be connected but DNS won’t work.
Go “Network & Internet” - “Wi-Fi” and hold VirtWifi network. Tap “Modify Network” and change IP Settings from DHCP to Static and type: IP Address - 10.152.152.12, Gateway - 10.152.152.10, Network prefix length - 18, DNS 1 - 10.152.152.10. And press save. Now restart Wi-Fi and it WILL WORK FINE!
IT WORKS EVEN AFTER REBOOT ANDROID X86 WOW!
So I’ve solved the problem which have not been solved during 7!!! years! Tested on Android x86 Oreo
Yeah! It really works but I’ve found one mistake. When you check you ip configuration for example via ipleak.net you can find that in the part of webrtc is your ip adress for connect with gateway 10.152.152.**
How to solve this?
That’s the reason why there’s a pre-configured Whonix-Workstation. There will be many similar shortcomings. It’s not easily replicated for any “other operating system”. This is mentioned on wiki page Anonymize Other Operating Systems.
So, I’m a newbie.
I have installed whonix and i would like to have a safe android environment in order to
run some chat apps as safe as it’s possible.
so i would like, if there is , to find an analytical guide how to do that.
i haven’t understand …
-i have to install android x86 iso inside whonix gateway?
-or install android x86 iso inside whonix workstation?
-or make a new virtual machine which runs from android x86 iso and in a way make it run through whonix?
i would like android workstation especially for signal and telegram apps so for this i would like your help on how and where to install android x86 iso and then follow the instructions above inside android’s environment Terminal Emulator .
