Introduction[edit]

Info This is an esoteric subject and the instructions are probably unnecessary -- advanced users only!

File Transfer might be a far simpler alternative.

Prerequisite Knowledge[edit]

Instructions[edit]

The following example uses ssh, but it could be replaced with something else.

If ssh is utilized, its setup on the host (such as public key setup) and related issues are out of scope for this documentation and are considered prerequisite knowledge. This wiki chapter is focused on connectivity and not server configuration details.

On the Host[edit]

Install the server software. Note: ssh is used as an example but can be replaced with alternatives.

Install ssh.

1. Update the package lists.

sudo apt-get update

2. Upgrade the system.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

3. Install the ssh package.

Using apt-get command line parameter --no-install-recommends is in most cases optional.

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ssh

The procedure of installing ssh is complete.

Inside the VM[edit]

Install the client software. Note: openssh-client is used as an example but can be replaced with alternatives.

1. Install openssh-client.

Install openssh-client.

1. Update the package lists.

sudo apt-get update

2. Upgrade the system.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

3. Install the openssh-client package.

Using apt-get command line parameter --no-install-recommends is in most cases optional.

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends openssh-client

The procedure of installing openssh-client is complete.

2. Optional: Create a persistent home folder for user clearnet.

sudo usermod -d /home/clearnet clearnet

sudo mkhomedir_helper clearnet

3. Open a shell under user clearnet.

sudo -u clearnet bash

4. Permanently disable stream isolation or temporarily circumvent stream isolation.

Syntax:

client-software ip-address

In the following example, note:

  • Replace ssh with the desired client software.
  • Replace the IP 192.168.1.0 with the actual local LAN IP of the host.
  • Drop .anondist-orig if the command is not uwt-wrapped by default.

ssh.anondist-orig 192.168.1.0

Troubleshooting[edit]

  • A configured host firewall might block connections to the service.

See Also[edit]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. It would probably require:
    • Less safe: enabling IP forwarding inside Whonix-Gateway ™; or
    • Safer: Opening an Incoming Port on Whonix-Gateway ™ Firewall and running some kind of proxy software in Whonix-Gateway ™ with user clearnet that permits forwarding to host, local area network or clearnet Internet.
