  1. @bjorn - do you get the same error if you take the sim card out altogether and boot up the LT without it ? If you do, the LT isn't recognising the SIM. I originally had the same issue because the SIM was in round the wrong way (it clicks into place just fine either way round). Mine works just fine now, on a Three data SIM.
  2. Fair enough. But as well as the pentest uses it does have sys admin uses where covert doesn't matter and the PS is way easier to deploy than laptops with multiple NICs. Horses for courses. The Pineapple Tetra has its place, but it's not as covert as a Nano.
  3. @biob Couldn't agree more. I doubt anyone here would disagree. The Hak5 team do a great job and produce great gear. But the point of Hak5 for me is that you don't just plug and play this stuff - in fact that's what makes Hak5 special. You start thinking of all the ways you can use and extend the devices and will always come up with the "if only" situations. I pre-ordered the PS because I know the Hak5 team do a great job. I then set about using it in my initial scenarios - one of which involves PoE. Lots of ideas came about in the posts and I eventually found a PoE solution tha
  4. PoE devices and the Packet Squirrel tcpdump payload sorted for me...a happy bunny squirrel. Didn't want to modify the squirrel itself, but wanted to capture packets for a PoE phone without needing extra power sockets. The squirrel doesn't need to be inline with the phone to do this - it just needs the packets sent to it. I looked for a PoE powered, managed switch with PoE pass-through and port mirroring & found the Netgear GS105PE. Others probably exist, but its the first one I came across. The PoE switch powers the GS105PE, which powers the phone.
  5. The Packet Squirrel uses 5v via micro USB to power it. To capture packets, the Packet Squirrel will use RJ45 wires 1,2,3 and 6 to get the packet data, as all 10/100 devices do. For PCs and printers and other non-PoE devices, that's fine as the voltages sent down those wires for the data packets are small (maybe 2 or 3 volts). When PoE devices are used, as well as the data packets, you can get around 50v coming down those same RJ45 wires to power the PoE device. That means the RJ45 connectors of the Packet Squirrel could get 50v sent to them and that might be too much for them to c
  6. Having had a good look at PoE, I have a problem - the use of PoE/PoE+ mode A by PoE switches. I wired up some RJ45 breakout boards to check and verify the voltages put on each wire with various setups. PoE powered devices are referred to as PD. Equipment providing PoE is referred to as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE). I'm assuming standard 802.3.af/at 48v active PoE/PoE+ coming from a PoE switch or injector, as they are the most common setup (and mostly PoE switches these days). I'm ignoring bespoke PoE setups using 12v/24v as I doubt I'd ever come across one. When equipm
  7. Thinking about PoE passthrough, I think I probably just need an Ethernet cable with the data wires going through the PS and the power wires going around it, with an 8-pin RJ45 coupler to plug into the original cable going to the AP. Think I've jut given myself some work to do when my PS gets delivered.
  8. I'd be interested in PoE passthrough in a future iteration. APs and IP phones are all PoE and to tap into those, you'd need PoE passthrough or a power injector (which would need a power socket close by and be even bigger).
  9. ordered. Also loving the Turtle 3G that I got at Defcon - that thing is scary for Sys Admins. Intrigued what the last product is. Guess It'll be Saturday morning before I find out as 7pm SanFran = 3am London.
  10. +1 for pre-order - been waiting and wanting since Defcon, but can't get to the launch as in the UK.
  11. @reubadoob Once you have your LT running the OpenVPN client as per Darren's video, the LT doesn't point its local IP settings back to the VPS - rather the OpenVPN gateway client-side subnet settings are routed via the LT by the VPN. To get as automatic as possible, if you are happy to blanket route all 192.168.x.y and 10.w.x.y addresses via the LT (i.e. this doesn't clash with any local PC private address routing you have), you can set the OpenVPN gateway settings just once and plug the LT into any of those networks and the routing will go to all of those via the LT regardless. The
  12. Hi, To get the address of the network you are plugged into via the ethernet cable, you can use the "ip addr show" command and pipe it through some utilities. For example: ip addr show dev eth1|grep -i "inet "|tr -s " "|cut -f 3 -d " " the first part (ip addr show dev eth1) will get you something like: 3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000 link/ether 00:13:37:a6:58:2d brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet brd scope global eth1 valid_lft forever preferred_lft
  13. Hi Seb, “Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.” I tried the SIM in a Huawei E3531 3g dongle and it connect to the internet OK. Checking on the settings it said it used, it had an APN of "3internet" rather than "three.co.uk" so I tried changing the APN in the turtle to that, but got the same CME ERROR response. I also tried setting up a new profile in the huawei using the "three.co.uk" APN and that worked on the Huawei also. Then I thought - what would the turtle do if there was no SIM card in it at all, and I got the same
  14. I have a data SIM that works and gets me onto the Internet in a spare phone and I have the APN setup correctly on the Turtle. The modem shows up correctly on the Turtle3g in the dmesg output and also in /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices, and /etc/config/network shows the 3gwan config lines, but it just won't appear as an interface. Just wondered if anyone have a 3G SIM working in s turtle3g and getting them onto the Internet? the output I get from a logread -f is: Tue Aug 15 22:17:56 2017 daemon.notice netifd: Interface '3gwan' is now down Tue Aug 15 22:17:56 2017 daemon
  15. I download the zip sporadically as I try different ideas and each idea may use different tools (pineapple, VPS, VPN, BB, turtle, etc.) individually or in conjunction. So I find it easy to miss updates if not concentrating on BB. Auto download and manual implement is perfect, especially with firmware updates that may break some scripts.
