If Whonix had a DHCP client running on eth0 on Whonix-Workstation...[edit]

Disadvantages:

  • Needs research: Some users with little knowledge only download Whonix-Workstation and set its network settings to DHCP. (example) Accepting any IP from DHCP would allow them to non-anonymously use Whonix-Workstation easily. We would have to add some protection not accepting an IP from VirtualBox NAT, if that is possible.
  • Needs research: Configuration of Onion Services could become more difficult, because these need a fixed internal IP?
