Redirect Whonix-Workstation Ports or Unix Domain Socket Files to Whonix-Gateway

Introduction[edit]

Socket redirection could be useful for any future applications that expect Tor or the ControlPort to listen on any specific port or unix domain socket file that is not (yet) added to anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor config by default, or for any other port or unix domain socket file redirections from the workstation to the gateway.

Instructions[edit]

Create and extend config file /etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d/50_user.conf. [1]

Create folder /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d/.

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d

Open /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.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 /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d/50_user.conf

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

kdesudo mousepad /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d/50_user.conf

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

sudo nano /usr/local/etc/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.d/50_user.conf

Then either add a port redirection.

For example to redirect Whonix-Workstation port 9100 to Whonix-Gateway port 9050. Note: adjust the port numbers for your needs.

file_port_tuples+=" port#9100:9050 "

Or create a unix domain socket file and have it forwarded to Whonix-Gateway port 9050.

file_port_tuples+=" /var/run/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor/unix-domain-socket-file.sock#9050 "

Save.

Run the systemd-socket-proxyd systemd-unit-files-generator.

sudo /usr/share/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor/systemd-unit-files-generator

The process of creating a redirection is now complete.
