Can we use ddclient with noip.com (or other ddns services) inside a Whonix VM to connect with our media servers or SSH ports?

I know pointing an .onion at our local server makes more sense, but I'm working on something that can't be done over onions.


No, you cannot directly have an incoming clearnet IP. I.e. you cannot use the public clearnet IP of a Tor exit relay to anonymously host a server.

Explanation on incoming connections / opening ports:

Indirectly works by using VPN with Remote Port Forwarding or pagekite. See:

I am a maintainer of Whonix


This kind of situations is soved as simple as it sounds: use OpenVPN as an onion service, and inside a fully-functional and feature-rich VPN segment do whatever you wish
