How to UnWhonix - restore clearnet networking[edit]

Instructions on how to remove Whonix Tor default networking for Whonix-Gateway. After applying these instructions, Whonix-Gateway will connect to clearnet.

Warning: Not anonymous!

Qubes specific!

Inside sys-whonix...

Unload Whonix Firewal.

Check.

sudo iptables --list

Should show.

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Inside another VM... Go to some non-Tor VM that has functional internet.

Figure out it is /etc/resolv.conf settings.

cat /etc/resolv.conf

Inside sys-whonix...

sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf

Open /etc/resolv.conf in an editor with root rights.

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix with KDE, run.

kdesudo kwrite /etc/resolv.conf

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix with XFCE, run.

kdesudo mousepad /etc/resolv.conf

If you are using a terminal-only Whonix, run.

sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf

Use the same settings from the non-Tor VM.

Deactivate all uwt wrappers globally.

The following instructions permanently deactivate all uwt wrappers and remove stream isolation for uwt wrapped applications system-wide. Consequently, all uwt wrapped applications revert to the default system networking configuration.

If you want more granular control of uwt wrapper deactivation, see Stream_Isolation#Deactivate_uwt_Stream_Isolation_Wrapper.

Open /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf in an editor with root rights.

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix with KDE, run.

kdesudo kwrite /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf

If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix with XFCE, run.

kdesudo mousepad /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf

If you are using a terminal-only Whonix, run.

sudo nano /etc/uwt.d/50_user.conf

Add.

uwtwrapper_global="0"

Save and exit.

scurl --remote-name https://check.torproject.org

Or manually run curl with these parameters. [1]

curl --tlsv1.2 --proto =https --remote-name https://check.torproject.org


Open index.html in an editor.

If you are using a graphical environment, run.

kwrite index.html

If you are using a terminal (Konsole), run.

nano index.html

Should include.

Sorry. You are not using Tor.
