  1. whatever became of this effort? I noticed you did a video around this same time (suggestion: it would've been great had you included a link to that in this thread. I just happened upon it a few days ago) and came to the conclusion that the mobile hotspots were the way to go when set to tethering mode. I can see the appeal, although it's kind of dumb to have the Pineapple supply power to the hotspot, since they all have built in batteries. In any case, the wiki page you splash in the video looked all nice and updated, but I can't find it on the current wiki. Has the 2.x firmware improved on this feature set any? I know I keep harping on this, but the Pineapple just sits and collects dust for me without being able to deploy mobile connectivity.
  2. also, the video you did back in May for mobile broadband had a rather full list on the wiki of supported devices. The link in the infusion tab (http://wifipineapple.com/modems) gives me a 404, and the wiki seems to have nothing about mobile devices now. Trying to see if support for additional 4G sticks has been added.
  3. Updated to 2.1.1 from 1.4. Had to do this manually as the Wifi Pineapple MK5 tile wasn't seeing new firmware. Everything flashed okay, but I forgot to wipe the SD card before I did the flash, and it picked up my old infusions. Blew those away, but now I cannot see any infusion options in the Pineapple Bar tab. Clicking "show" shows just the headers and no options. There's all this new GUI stuff to play with and I can't get any of it! =( Yes, I already restored the Mk5 to factory defaults after the flash and SD reformat. What gives?
  4. Alright, I've grown pretty frustrated at the lack of documentation and support for this feature. I've used several usb sticks and I cannot get anything to work. There's no documentation of what tools are available for troubleshooting or even configuration. The wiki link Darren points to above has NEVER been updated and there's no info there to start with. This is an advertised feature and one that I specifically bought the mk5 for, yet after **6 months** of cranking on it, I've yet to find a working configuration. C'mon guys! My questions are simple: 1) what devices (brand and model) are supported plug n play? I don't want the hex addresses out of lsusb. That doesn't help me find a support device. Specifically I'm looking for 4G LTE devices on Verizon. 2) for devices that are not supported, what tools are available to add support? Surely there must be the ability to add drivers or just additional configurations just like any other device you'd add to a linux system. The lack of documentation for BusyBox is appalling. Without some help here, I'm gonna have to abandon the pineapple altogether.
  5. What happened to screen in the opkg repository? I know it was in previous versions because I'd used it. Now, it's not even in the repo list once I upgraded to 1.3
  6. In browsing around, there's a few people who have used git and github to manage this for other systems. Not sure how heavy git is, but would anyone be interested in working with me to port it to busy box to see if it works as a config management tool?
  7. Well, that's not the behavior I'm seeing. I'm seeing nothing being logged at all. SSLstrip is obviously not parsing the traffic going over the interfaces. I've tested this multiple times and can repeat it. Log files are created but empty using cat at the CLI. In fact, I know it's not working because the 'victim' machine is still able to see the target website as HTTPS, including a valid certificate. So SSLstrip is not MITM.
  8. Which is another reason why I've posted a question to the community on how they manage configs. Seems that it should be easy enough to dd the root filesystems onto an sd card or somewhere. But frankly, my experimentation with that has not been "easy". So I'd like to hear other concepts of how to do it. It gets awfully tiring restoring settings and swapping config files in and out for different projects and in between updates. The root filesystems aren't big enough to run a proper cms, nor would I want the CPU overhead of doing this. It would also be nice to tripwire (or similar) some of the bins and config files to ensure that they've not been tampered with since these boxes can often be subject to a lot of abuse while in the field.
  9. One thing I'll add, and I'm not sure why this should make any difference, but the Pineapple AP is on the same subnet as all the other machines. So the devices connecting to the AP are getting DHCP addresses from the router that the Pineapple AP is also getting a dhcp address from (via eth0). Not sure why this should make a difference for sslstrip, since I would think it's going to look at all traffic passing through the Pineapple, but that's it. Not sure if you have to put an interface into promiscuous mode or not. That doesn't seem right to me.
  10. I am having the exact same issue. I've got the ethernet plugged into my LAN and wlan0 acting as a honey pot AP. However, all clients that are connecting to the AP are not getting the HTTP version of the sites I am browsing to. They are getting the HTTPS versions, as if the pineapple is just bridging and sslstrip is not monitoring the traffic. This is the same whether I'm on the command line or the the web GUI. Yes, I've updated the infusion this afternoon.
  11. Okay, had a chance to dink with this a bit. My modem is not on the list you posted above. I've upgraded to 1.2.0 and applied the patch for the broadband support that just came out. Still no dice. lsusb reports the device as Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1004:61aa LG Electronics, Inc. Still, I'm unable to invoke 20-modeswitch to see if that recognizes it and I don't see any other way to map that device to any /dev/tty. My dial config is pretty close to yours, but obviously set to support Verizon (what I can gather is needed to support Verizon's LTE on the LG stick). I know this stick works great, because I use it on my MBP all the time. There are drivers for it available for Linux, so it shouldn't be that big of a deal. It's not an sd card reader or anything complex like that, so this should be pretty pnp, but I still can't get it to work. What direction can you point me in?
  12. Thanks again. I thought about the script approach, but am looking for a cleaner approach. Hence why I'm putting it to the community for suggestions. I'd rather not try and fab up a content management system if something is more elegant. The OpenWRT link you provided is VERY helpful. I wasn't aware of that ability. So many thanks for that. Cheers!
  13. Thanks for the quick reply. For the first question, I'm looking at completely different configs, not just running scripts off of the DIP's. So for example, I'd configure the various interfaces and settings in rc.d and init.d completely differently for project A versus project B. Also, I'd just like to be able to keep backups of the images as I change things around, rather than filling up the storage on the Mk5 with .bak files or various versions. Make sense? Secondly, I'm unfamiliar with the openwrt toolchain. I would think that if I compiled an exe on a linux machine, unless it was an emulation of the same OS running on the Mk5, I'm not going to get a good exe to copy over to it. That's why I was asking about emulation for a dev environment. The first problem might solve the second problem. If I had an image for the Mk5 with compilers on it, then I could compile, copy the exe over to a different image of the Mk5 that doesn't have the compilers on it, and that should work. In the end, I'm trying to keep myself sane by keeping the file systems on the Mk5 "clean" as I do various projects. It makes it very hard to debug or just config things when you have lots of junk floating around from this that and the other versions of things.
  14. I'd like to hear other's ideas on how best to work on the Mk5's file system off of the actual device itself. Does anyone use an emulator for development work? Or do you just image the flash and sd card and swap images/cards into the device when you want to try something new? I'm searching for alternatives because I haven't found an emulator and managing multiple images is a big pain. I have two reasons for this: 1) I want to be able to construct various setups for the Mk5 and just boot them as needed. I don't want to fiddle with settings/files on the actual production version when I can do that on an emulator or image the device and keep multiple images on my workstation and then load them as needed. This helps me when I want to setup the Mk5 for MITM testing verses pen testing versus plain ol AP work, etc. How are other's accomplishing this? How are you imaging /? dd? Any other suggestions? 2) I want to be able to develop or compile things and this seems to be a problem on the device itself. I don't want to load a compiler on the device due to the security risks inherent in that. Plus the space issues. I'd rather have it on an emulator or another device, compile what I need to an image, and then load that image to the Mk5 when needed. This is particularly urgent for me to update ettercap, since the opkg store version is several revs back (0.7.2?) from current rev (0.8!) with many many bugs fixed and new features. How have others handled this? Thanks in advance.
  15. Thanks Darren. That gives me a lot of information that I've been unable to compile on my own. I'll post my details when I get a chance to dig into this more.
  16. Here here! I'd like to have some more info on this as well. There's scant documentation, even for the Mark IV, on how to get this up and running. Links to "compatible modems" and "configuration guidelines" are broken. The Mark V is advertised as having support for this "out of box". Apparently that also means "out of luck". I've been struggling with this for 2 months. Going through the mobile broadband parameters for a 4G LTE stick (LG VL600) on Verizon has been nothing but trial and error. This seems like it shouldn't be nearly this hard. I'd rather be using this time more productively on applying the Pineapple and extending its capabilities. Can we at least create some stickies with posts from users who've found some success? Even with the Mark IV?
  17. I couldn't find wpa_supplicant anywhere on the pineapple. Nor are any of the normal IP tool commands available (dhclient for one). It seems very black box. Thanks for the explanation on the br-lan. I can see how this works, although I'm unclear why you'd want to configure eth0 this way, since there's only one port.
  18. Apparently "out-of-the-box support" means you can plug it in. And that's about it. Very scant data about what is supported or how to configure it.
  19. This thread has been very educational despite ptrac3's problem, as it's given me the location of the config files and the basic entries for establishing the wireless interfaces. However... I'm having a lot of trouble groking how to manage the network interfaces on the mk5. The normal cli tools for managing these things, like wpa_supplicant and dhclient are not on this distro. Obviously I can connect to AP's in client mode using the web GUI, but what I've noticed about this is that the mk5 will 'stick' to those AP's when in range. I have to use ifconfig to manually set the AP information to null it out so that the interface will not associate with a particular AP. I have not figured out how to disassociate any other way. Even after reboots. Can someone point me to some tools to help manage this better? Simply selecting "disconnect" in the web GUI does not always disassociate from the AP and upon reboots, doesn't prevent the mk5 from re-associating to that AP. Also, I'm unclear on the purpose of the br-lan interface. It appears to change based upon various states of the mk5. What's its purpose? How is it controlled and what is the flow for how it's determined? Thanks in advance.
