  1. Hey All, I was watching a Def Con talk from a couple years back, where Darren and Seb were demoing the MKV, and Darren mentioned in passing that you can connect multiple pineapples together. I have a Tetra and a Nano, and I would like to be able to connect my Nano to the Tetra over USB, and manage my Tetra by connecting my laptop to the Nano (over wireless of course). Has anyone tried this? If so, I would love to hear how you set it up and if it's working okay for you. Any issues or potential pitfalls I should be worried about? Thanks!
  2. That's great to hear, it is truly a great antenna (try two one of these days for double the awesome)! Not to get geeky, but I just wanted to point out that you can use the arc length formula to estimate fairly well the width of your beam at a given distance (remember a beam is an arc, and will grow as the distance increases). The formula is actually quite simple: Arc Length = 2πR * (C/360) Where R is the radius (but in our terms, it will be the distance you are trying to reach), and C is the central angle (E.g. 30 degrees for the Yagi antenna) So if we take the Yagi as an example: let's say you are trying to find a "Rogue AP" as you put it, that is supposed to be 100 feet away (this is our radius), and we know that the Yagi has a 30 degree beam-width to start with (this is our central angle). Arc Length = (2π * 100) * (30/360) = (628) * (1/12) = ~52.3 So the beam-width will be approximately ~ 52.3 degrees at 100 feet of distance. This formula has helped me plenty of times in the past when needing to know a certain coverage area for a given distance, so I hope this will help you as well to more accurately find the AP's you are looking for. Good Luck!
  3. You are correct, if he needs more focused then definitely the yagi is the way to go. I don't know why I thought the beam-width was narrower than that for the 7dBi panel antenna; I must've confused it with the other 5GHz version from alfa, thank you for pointing this out! Also, DIY is certainly an interesting option! :)
  4. I understand, I would still recommend the 7dBi Panel Antenna, because it has a decent accuracy, given its small size and low power requirement. Take a look at the manufacturers page, has a nice map of its polarization: https://www.alfa.com.tw/products_show.php?pc=46&ps=36 Here is another one by alfa that is slightly more powerful, and has a 66 degree beam-width, and has the benefit of working on 5GHz as well: https://www.alfa.com.tw/products_show.php?pc=133&ps=206 You can of course find antennas that have much more focused beam-widths, but the issue with those is that they tend to be bulky and draw more power. The alfa parabolic antenna for example: https://www.alfa.com.tw/products_show.php?pc=47&ps=100 You didn't mention this in your original post, and I didn't ask either, but does the size of the antenna matter to you? If not, then you can definitely go with something like the parabolic antenna mentioned above. It has a nice 10 degree beam-width and is the most focused I've found in antennas. Good Luck.
  5. Hey Whistle, Just wanted to give you a shout-out! I finally got around to using the tcpdump module today, and oh man...when I tested it out with some wireless devices that were connected to the wifi pineapple (using an Internet Connection Sharing through a VPN, no less) and I browsed some websites that fail to use https even at a login page (*face-palm*) I was able to see the usernames and passwords in clear plain-text. If this doesn't scare lazy web-developers, I don't know what will... I'm going to use this method from now on as an example to show people why http has GOT TO GO. Thanks for a great tool!
  6. Have you had a look at the HakShop lately? They've got a great selection of wireless gear, and in particular what you are looking for, there's an amazing directional Yagi Antenna: https://hakshop.com/collections/wireless-gear/products/16dbi-yagi-antenna This thing is a BEAST to say the least, and surprisingly portable given its power. You can use it with an Alfa wireless usb adapter, or even with the Wifi Pineapple. If you want something a lot smaller, more portable, but with much less range, than the 7dBi Panel Antenna is great too: https://hakshop.com/collections/wireless-gear/products/7dbi-panel-antenna I used to use the following antenna for really long-range stuff, but honestly it was just WAY too bulky. I could accomplish the same exact thing with the Yagi Antenna above, and I never saw a difference in range (at least in my scenarios): https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Directional-Parabolic-Connector-TL-ANT2424B/dp/B003CFATOW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1481862639&sr=8-3&keywords=tp-link+directional+antenna Either will do you good, but if you plan to move the antenna around a lot, then the Yagi has the best portability for its range. The only scenario where I would still choose the TP-Link above is if I'm going to mount the antenna and NEVER move it again. Hope this helps.
  7. Hey Gang! I'm going to be using the Tetra from my vehicle on the go, and I'm looking to use the following Inverter to be able to power the Pineapple: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UFERZKO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AWZ3LXPHZK09 I'm going to use the power adapter that came with the Tetra to connect to this Inverter, and I'm just curious if anyone has used an Inverter with a Pineapple before. If so, are there any "gotchas" I need to worry about? From the specifications of this Inverter, it takes the DC 12V car cigarette lighter, and outputs AC 110V; and has a capacity of up to 400W (which is plenty, as I'll only be using it with the Tetra, and a small netboot that draws ~ 30W at peak). I'm curious, so let me know what you guys think!
  8. Hey guys, I'm in the same boat as OP; I have a retired MK_IV that is looking to get some love again. I've been recently following along a tutorial that Hak5 has posted on the YouTubes about setting up an OpenVPN Access Server (really cool and fairly easy stuff, see below): I would like to use the MK_IV as the Access Point since it is WRT based, however, I cannot get the pineapple to connect to the Internet. The pineapple has been factory reset, and updated to the latest firmware (2.8.1), and I can connect to it no problem. I have tested Internet Connection Sharing to see if that works, and it does without a hitch (clients can connect to pineapple AP and get Internet). However, when the pineapple itself tries to get Internet - either by revealing public IP or by downloading Infusions list - it fails to connect. This is especially weird, because I can SSH into the pineapple and run a ping command to any IP / web address and get a successful response, but when I try to reveal the public IP through GUI, it errors out. According to the above posts (if I understood them correctly), I can use the Network Manager infusion to get the pineapples Internet to work. Now, I saw @kerravon's post about downloading the Network Manager infusion from git where he so kindly posted the links to, but I'm unfortunately not savvy enough to figure out how to download those files so that I can scp it over to my pineapple, and I've never used Git before. Would someone be willing to lend a hand and let me know what is the best way to get those files over to my pineapple? And if anyone above has already tried the Network Manager option, did it end up working for you? I am currently using a Windows machine, but I have a Kali box available as well, in case this can only be done from Linux terminal. I appreciate the help of the community! *EDIT: Just realized that the following post below is trying to accomplish my exact same thing. Moderators, feel free to let me know if I should post under that topic instead, and i'll happily move it. Thanks!
  9. Don't feel too bad, I did the same exact thing the first night; I was so excited the night it arrived, I had barely any sleep and I was playing with it until the wee hours of the morning. Turns out, sleep was the fix to that bug :)
  10. Hello jbhur, b0N3z is correct in his statements; that is the exact same setup I have at my office as well, and it works without a single issue. I have the tetra, and after the initial setup using the USB-ETH cable (just to set it up with upgraded firmware and such), I connected it to my LAN in the server room through the RJ-45 port, and on reboot it picked up an IP automatically from my DHCP server; and it remains there doing what it does best... I hope you enjoy your new gear, post back with the results!
  11. Hey guys, anyone else getting the message: "bash: simple-ducky: command not found" The script seems to be running good and installs without issues as far as I can tell. It says to press any key to continue, so I do. After that, when I type simple-ducky as a command, it gives me the above message. I read through the entire post and no one had this same issue or I wouldn't be asking. I'm probably just doing something wrong so any help would be appreciated. Thank you, -JCAG Forgot to mention that I am doing this on Kali Linux using their Raspberry Pi image. Hope that helps!
  12. Hey guys, I know this is an old post, but I have a quick question...I would like to know what I can and CAN'T delete off of the pineapple to make some room. I have not installed any modules that I'm aware of so I cannot remove anything from there. I do have some phishing test stuff totaling in at about 2MB. Does anyone know how big the pineapple on-board storage is? Any help would be greatly appreciated! p.s. Why is there a "rom" folder under "root" that looks to be the same exact copy and folder structure as root? Could there be something wrong there? Thanks! -JCAG
  13. I definitely did my research on the device and its uses so I shouldn't have much issue with it. I appreciate the warning though. Thanks, JCAG
  14. I read the clean flash wiki and followed the steps previously, but it had not worked. I will definitely try the process again and see if I can access the boot loader option as I did not get that previously. I did also just order the Serial TTL Cable from the Hak Shop because it is possible my device may not be picking up the pineapple properly and I would like to make sure there is no room for error. Plus, I can always find use for the cable in the future for other things so its a win win. I will wait for the serial device to arrive and give that a try. Thank you for the advice you have given me thus far and I will update you all as soon as I have a successful attempt. Best Regards, JCAG
  15. Hey Mr-Protocol, Thanks for your prompt response. I'll be happy to admit that I am not perfect lol so it's definitely possible that I'm doing something wrong! Could you tell me what steps you took so that I can compare it to my procedures and see if I did something wrong? One more thing I should have probably mentioned in my first post is that I am using a serial board I had received with an old Fon router I bought overseas 1 year ago. Do you think there might be some incompatibilities there? Thank you, JCAG
  16. Pineapple Hardware Version: Mark IV Pineapple Software Version: 2.7.7 Desktop OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PoE/LAN port IP: Terminal App Used: Putty Hey guys, I've been following this entire thread very diligently and have tried all the solutions recommended here. Unfortunately, I have not been able to replicate the success that some of you have had with resetting your pineapples. I was directed here after emailing shop at hak5 dot org and they recommended I ask around for any further solutions someone may have. I have tried the reset button with all the different time combinations I can think of and have also tried connecting to the pineapple via serial. I want to reiterate that I can connect to it, but the password just does not work. One more important note...I was able to successfully boot into the pineapple after flashing to v2.7.7 and use the device. It was after I changed my password that I could not get back in. I know everyone here has been working very hard to resolve their issues, but I'm hoping someone might have an idea that I could not think of that will help resolve my issue. Thank you, JCAG
  17. I have to completely agree that SpiceWorks is one of the top solutions out there. I use it for my company and it does absolute wonders. Even though it is FREE, for the features it gives, I would even be willing to pay for it. Their community network is amazing, with other experts ready to help you should you have any questions. Also, it allows for you to customize a lot of different aspects of the program to make it work for your specific company. One of my favorite parts...You can access everything remotely since it works off of Port 80 and other Internet accessible Ports and there are Android and iOS apps for smartphones and tablets.
  18. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
