remove duplicate ipv4 forwarding disable
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

grep -r ipv4 *

I think this is unnecessary.

usr/lib/qubes-whonix/init/network-proxy-setup:        echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
usr/lib/qubes-whonix/init/network-proxy-setup:echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
usr/lib/qubes-whonix/init/qubes-whonix-firewall:echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

This is already done by the https://github.com/Whonix/ipv4-forward-disable package.

Patrick created this task.
Patrick raised the priority of this task from to Normal.

Without the disables, whonixcheck reports that ip_forward is disabled right before/after whonix-setup so to be on the safe side I added this in. Again Qubes enables it.

I advice to fix this in a later version of Qubes upstream and in the qubes-whonix version.
