In Whonix 9, on Whonix-Workstation, if Tor has not been enabled on Whonix-Gateway (DisableNetwork 1; whonixsetup has not been run), whonixcheck will say.

Tor Bootstrap Result: 
Whonixcheck gave up waiting after 60 seconds. 
Tor Circuit: not established 
Bootstrapping 80 % done. 
Tor reports: NOTICE BOOTSTRAP PROGRESS=80 TAG=conn_or SUMMARY="Connecting to the Tor network". 

Possible issues: 
- Is the host's internet connection working? 
- Whonix-Gateway will need a few moments for bootstrapping the Tor network. 
- Did you start Whonix-Gateway beforehand? 

Try again: Start menu -> Applications -> System -> Whonix Check 
or in Terminal: whonixcheck 
or in Terminal with debugging: bash -x whonixcheck --verbose 
Run whonixcheck on Whonix-Gateway as well.

Is this sufficient?

Or should whonixcheck get information from Whonix-Gatway?

Whonix-Gateway could send information to Whonix-Workstation and tell it “Tor not enabled yet on Whonix-Gateway”.
