Newbie (1/14)

  1. I'm setting up a small network of computers for a public wifi spot, and would like to set it up so that every time a computer boots, it boots from a static image. So any changes that are made to the system will be wiped out every time it is shut down. Any saved files, installed programs, etc. Will make it so that nobody can install a keylogger or trojan that'll persist throughout days/weeks/months, and will also protect the company for being responsible if something illegal is stored upon their systems. Make it easy for them to be set up, and then require no/little maintenance. How would I go about doing this?
  2. Check out: https://we.riseup.net/debian/remotely-wiping-disks Might be able to edit the bootable disc to pass those commands during boot.
  3. Serial cable randomly started working again... Need some help again though. Been using "Using Openwrt on La Fonera for Dummies" which has helped a lot. But I can't get tftpd32 working. Most of the tutorials I've read about how to flash via serial just says throw the files in your tftpd32 folder, start it, and load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} name_of_the_file after setting the server ip with fconfig bootp_server_ip I followed the Dummies guide step by step, didn't work. Then tried it with (which is the only available ip address on the dropdown of my tftpd32 program). Both gave me the following error: Using default protocol (TFTP) __udp_sendto: Can't find address of server Can't load 'openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma': some sort of network error RedBoot> Which I understand since I can't "ping -h" that address. Or any other address for that matter. How can I get tftpd32 working so that I can debrick my Fon?
  4. Guess I'll have to whip out my multimeter and a few other things and slowly troubleshoot my cable... Worked fine for awhile. Wonder what happened.
  5. Only problem is, as I said in my second post, that for some reason my serial cable is fucking up now. PuTTy will stop accepting input, and will just put out jibberish... Mostly + signs +++ÿø@+++++++++ ð++++++++ë
  6. Also: As I've started working on this, RedBoot has randomly started to STOP responding, and refusing all input... Only scrolls a bunch of + signs of its own accord. Any input as to this, as well?
  7. Bricked my fonera hardcore abit ago. Been waiting for my usb cable to arrive. I made myself a USB-To-Serial cable. Got that working. Finally got into Redboot. Following the Piranha Install and this is what I get in the output. RedBoot> ip_addr -h -l IP:, Gateway: Default server: RedBoot> fis init About to initialize [format] FLASH image system - continue (y/n)? y *** Initialize FLASH Image System ... Erase from 0xa87e0000-0xa87f0000: . ... Program from 0x80ff0000-0x81000000 at 0xa87e0000: . RedBoot> load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma Using default protocol (TFTP) __udp_sendto: Can't find address of server Can't load 'openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma': some sort of network error RedBoot> So I know it is a problem with tftpd32. However, I don't know what. Here are the screenshots of all my settings and the files in the root folder.
  8. Hamachi is god. Use it. Learn it. Love it. Used it for creating "LAN Parties" when... nobody was here. Great for games that wont play over the web. Also use it for secure web browsing while I'm out and about by partnering it with Squid on my home machine.
  9. Nope, never used Secunia PSI. Just downloaded and am now scanning my system. I obviously have my IE locked completely down as it couldn't run initially as IE was blocking everything it tried to do. I knew about SpyBots immunize feature. And I completely agree with you, everything should NOT be trusted, and should only be added to the trusted list on a case per case basis. And only if it is necessary for the site to function properly. But I'm looking for a way to create a config file, or a batch file, or something, that'll make it incredibly easy to transfer my zones configurations to other computers. Any pointers on that? EDIT: Found GRC's "TrustPuppy" which isn't exactly what I'm looking for, but much closer than manually configuring everything. However.... Can't seem to reach the download page. Four-Oh-Four
  10. I've recently switched back to IE, and have really embraced the power behind Internet Explorer's trusted zone security settings. Even if I am visiting a webpage that is in my trusted zone (i.e. Hak5.org) and there is an embedded webpage somewhere within the "trusted" site, IE automatically uses the restricted settings for the embedded one. Microsoft seems to have pulled this aspect off in a much more elegant manner than most of their products. Anyway, I digress. I'm looking for a way to set up IE's Trusted Zones automatically, whether it be via a batch script or anything else for that matter, but can't find any information on it out there... Only on how to configure it manually (which is pretty self explanatory, anyway). Does anybody know how to go about this via batch scripting (and if so example commands, etc)? Or a site I can be linked to that I've yet to come across? Or is there another way to do this? If so, how?
  11. I came across this as I was looking for a way to actually boot my computer via text message. I've already set this up using Thunderbird on my computer in order to start and shutdown my secure browsing VPN (Combo of Hamachi and Squid). VERY useful when I'm travelling. Simple bat files: rem Start Squid - The Server Side Proxy cd C:\squid\sbin\ start squid.exe rem Start Hamachi - The VPN Tunnel cd C:\Program Files\Hamachi start hamachi.exe rem Shutdown Squid - The Server Side Proxy taskkill /im squid.exe /f rem Shutdown Hamachi - The VPN Tunnel taskkill /im hamachi.exe /f I was just tryin to find some way to remote boot and shutdown my home computer itself so that I don't always have to leave it running while I'm travelling. Didn't think it was possible to boot remotely. Any corrections, people?
  12. I'm looking to expand my horizons and have found a few good sites out there to get started with breadboarding and hardware hacks. I'm a complete newbie though when it comes down to this. Anybody want to share any links that would get a beginner hardware hacker started? Introduction to Breadboarding Reading Circuit Diagrams Designing Circuits Beginner Projects Anything Else Any and all links/tips/tricks/advice would be helpful. If there are a lot of responses I'll start editing this topic in order to keep all the links in order in case anybody else needs help getting started. Thanks in advance, everybody!
  13. Okay okay okay! Got the X-WRT webif UP and RUNNING! Pretty graphs and everything! I issued an "opkg -recursive remove haserl" in order to completely uninstall haserl and the current webif I then found more up to date packages online than the ones that were linked to in the step-by-step wiki. The ones in the package are haserl_0.8.0-2_mips.ipk, and webif_0.3-10_mips.ipk The packages I downloaded: haserl_0.9.24-1_mips.ipk http://downloads.x-wrt.org/xwrt/kamikaze/8...9.24-1_mips.ipk webif_0.3-4709_mips.ipk http://downloads.x-wrt.org/xwrt/kamikaze/8...3-4709_mips.ipk Downloaded those, and opkg installed. Threw one error: Installing webif (0.3-4709) to root... Configuring webif Collected errors: * Could not obtain administrative lock Committing new firmware id ... Device: Generic Committing new device id ... SUCCESS! Webif^2 installation appears OK. Welcome to X-Wrt! Was concerned with that, but went ahead and popped on over to to check out the Jasager to make sure that still worked (Didn't want to break the one webif that was working for me, hah) and then hopped over to to check out the X-WRT webif. Oh MY GOODNESS! It worked! But it was minimal and didn't look very pretty, so I downloaded webif-theme-xwrt_0.3-4709_all.ipk, which is located here: http://downloads.x-wrt.org/xwrt/kamikaze/8....3-4709_all.ipk Installed that, and voila! nice and pretty and have access to both interfaces! HOWEVER: I did all this through ethernet instead of wifi. Rebooted after that. Still worked via LAN, but I cannot access the pages via WiFi. Any idea how I correct that little problem? (VERY little problem when compared to the hassle I've been given so far, haha)
  14. That's what I don't understand. ... Those errors don't make sense. Those files are THERE. Ugh. Anyway, these are the only errors the webif opkg install throws (Besides mips unknown, which I'm pretty sure shows up in the step-by-step wiki too, so it shouldn't be a problem): cat: can't open '/etc/ipkg.conf': No such file or directory ..... //usr/lib/opkg/info/webif.postinst: line 228: ipkg: not found /usr/lib/webif/webif-mklanglist.sh: line 5: ipkg: not found /usr/lib/webif/webif-mkthemelist.sh: line 4: ipkg: not found So I only need ipkg.conf, webif.postinst, webif-mklanglist.sh, webif-mkthemelist.sh. root@OpenWrt:/# ls /etc/ipkg.conf /etc/ipkg.conf root@OpenWrt:/# ls //usr/lib/opkg/info/webif.postinst //usr/lib/opkg/info/webif.postinst root@OpenWrt:/# ls /usr/lib/webif/webif-* /usr/lib/webif/webif-mklanglist.sh /usr/lib/webif/webif-mkthemelist.sh root@OpenWrt:/# So all the files are there... I don't understand what is going on... So I don't understand why it isn't working. All the files that it throws errors over do exist, and are where they say they are.
  15. okay, unable to get a ping response from either of those.. I know it isn't bricked cause I can still access the Jasager webif (Just not the x-wrt webif), I just can't reflash it at all it seems, until I build myself a data cable. Any ideas about why my cgi-bin/webif/info.sh is showing up as a blank screen?
