---------------------------------- I did some analysis this morning. So at the same point in time the following settings on my Qubes laptop showed the following values. (Bottom line is that whonix/tor does not work) 1. The hardware BIOS clock is: 1030 (BIOS battery good, removed laptop battery for few hours and date/time stayed same) 2. Dom0 time is: 0530 ( via date command) 3. service:sys-whonix is: 1030 (via date command) 4. Clock on upper right of screen is: 0430 Tor Boostrap info is: Whonixcheck gave up waiting clock skew -21635 in directory from DIRSERV sudo date --set “2018 -02-18 17:30:00” ----------------------------- I think that on a normal bootup the clocks should be in sync and Whonix/Tor should work. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
