I´m new here and have a couple questions regarding the Whonix Gateway. I am not particularly experienced in computers, but am very interested by them.
I have a Raspberry Pi running Pi-Hole and Pi-VPN, and after setting them up (quite easy actually), I started to get interested in security, anonimity, privacy issues. So I have started to work on a larger, better project. I put together a PC, loaded Debian, and am looking forward to setting up my own cloud and email service from that “server”, also I want that PC to be my “Gateway” to my home network, and of couse security is important, so I was thinking of using the same setup (Pi-Hole, Pi-VPN) as before, but after reading a bit the VPN will have to go, Pi-Hole works fine and would definitely like to keep it.
I have a few questions: will setting up the Whonix Gateway in a VM on this server help make my forays into the internet anonymous ?? will it work for all the PC´s in my network, considering this will be the only access to the internet for my home network ?? Will Pi-Hole continue to work (really good not having those ads) ?? Will my email server and cloud work behind the Gateway ??
Lastly, assuming all works fine behind the gateway, how do I manage to make all this setup work say if I want to access my cloud or email from my phone, or from my laptop, when not in my own private network at home. How can I access my stuff from the outside, while not beaking the benefits of the gateway and TOR ??
Will this setup work ??
TOR ------ Home Server (whonix gateway, cloud, email, pi-hole, etc.) ---- Home LAN
How do I get this to work ??
Phone/Laptop ---- TOR ----- Home Server (whonix etc)
I hope this is clear enough, I am not tehnical to any degree, so please bear with me if I´m not accurate or detailed.
