Now I'm getting somewhere.

Yes, but I have no idea what the server is seeing from me. So I was
hoping for somebody who already went through this to share info. The
couple I have tried so far do not even use HTTPS for the control panel.
I searched for ssh support and it is a web console that simulates ssh in
the browser. FTP so far is plain and open. And to make things nicer,
they do email me the account and password.

But when most people ask the answers are like this. How's «properly
configured»? How do I know it is properly configured?

The wiki is quite messy. And you have old stuff and new stuff. None is
dated so the new stuff can be old as well.

I fully agree with you: complex apps are simply complex. I want basic
tools and for that I am ready to pass the GUI and go for the shell. But
how do I test for leaks?

Please understand, I have nothing against you: on the contrary, you are
the only one who answered me. But the whole thing is a mess. A year or
so I asked the Tails guys why doesn't my USB installed from VirtualBox
doesn't work. They were rather cold and the main guy said something
along the lines: it's not free and we don't support it. Yes, the USB
part of VirtualBox is not supported. Whonix needs it. And it's a 3Gb

I feel so lost...
