The day before I got a serious problem communicating with Tor.

Tor Bootstrap Result: Whonix-check gave up waiting after 60 seconds. Bootstrapping 85% done.

Tor reports: WARN BOOTSRAP PROGRESS=85 TAG= handshake_or SUMMARY="Finishing handshake with first hop “WARNING="Connection timed out" REASON=TIMEOUT COUNT=75 RECOMMENDATION=warn

enter image description here

First of all I checked the Tor on host and Tor working well, but before ruining showed me this :

    7/29/2014 7:33:11 AM.587 [NOTICE] DisableNetwork is set. Tor will not make or accept non-control network connections. Shutting down all existing connections.

But after awhile Tor is connecting and Tor browser normally opens. However, I Still have problem connecting on Whonix OS.

  • Dear, do you use bridges or pluggable transport bridges? – Roya Jul 29 '14 at 4:49
  • I just used Whonix by default, I didn't nothing changed and about Tor on host (windows7) too nothing changed on it. – Photon Jul 29 '14 at 6:50
  • Why are you running Tor on the host? That's not necessary for running Whonix. And it may be the source of your problem. I don't have a Windows box to test on, and I don't remember how VirtualBox handles Tor running on the host. Anyway, see if Whonix works when Tor is NOT running on the host. – mirimir Jul 29 '14 at 15:58
  • Yes I know it's not required to use Tor on host (windows7) for ruining whonix on VB. I am using to make sure it works. Until a few days ago, Whonix OS worked well. My main problem with this is that the Whonix OS is not connected to Tor any more. – Photon Jul 29 '14 at 17:02
  • I just tested on Whonix OS without Tor running on host, but it still does not work... – Photon Jul 29 '14 at 17:16
