  1. Very cool idea. Hey whatever works the best for your situation :) The nice thing about the GPS however is that the simple act of powering it up automatically starts the receiver and looks for sats. So during the 45 seconds or so of the pineapple booting up it usually already has a lock by the time the script starts. The scripts usually takes about 5-20 seconds depending on cold start vs hot start. The Globalsat has a built in supercapacitor that helps keep a lock even after you power it off. This function of course only lasts maybe an hour before it becomes "cold". Also, no SSH required, which is how I use my pineapple in the feild usually. I like it to be preconfigured and able to deploy autonomously. But like I said, whatever works best for your situation. One of these days I'd like to experiment with adding a Real Time Clock like this one to the Pineapple. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/181630087399?lpid=82&chn=ps
  2. I use a Globalsat BU-353. It only draws about 60mA @9v (measured from the pineapple power supply) but is only needed while the script is running. I simply unplug it afterwards unless i'm using it for other things like Kismet. I also have an older Pharos iGPS-500 that does the job but is much slower and clunkier. I prefer the Globalsat.
  3. You could also plug in a USB GPS dongle and grab the date/time data using GPSD. This is my borrowed/modified script I use at startup. # START GPSD /usr/sbin/gpsd -n -b /dev/ttyUSB0 pineapple led blue on echo "Starting GPSD" # WAIT UNTIL IT'S READY TO ACCEPT CLIENT CONNECTIONS sleep 1 # MONITOR GPS STATUS AND WAIT FOR SAT LOCK echo "Waiting for GPS lock" /usr/bin/gpspipe -l -w -n 10 | grep -qm 1 '"mode":3' # PARSE THE CURRENT UTC TIME FROM THE GPSD OUTPUT UTCDATE=`/usr/bin/gpspipe -w -n 10 | grep -m 1 "TPV" | sed -r 's/.*"time":"([^"]*)".*/\1/' | sed -e 's/^\(.\{10\}\)T\(.\{8\}\).*/\1 \2/'` # SET THE PINEAPPLE'S CLOCK /bin/date -u -s "$UTCDATE" echo "Time Set" pineapple led blue off
  4. Well I figured it out. I stumbled across a post by dvarapala about warwalking and he posted his script which happens to do the exact thing that I want :) https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/33855-warwalking-redux-and-a-question/ #!/bin/bash # START CLEAN pkill hostapd pkill gpsd pkill kismet /sbin/ifconfig wlan0 down /sbin/ifconfig wlan1 down # START GPSD /usr/sbin/gpsd -n /dev/ttyUSB0 # WAIT UNTIL IT'S READY TO ACCEPT CLIENT CONNECTIONS sleep 1 # MONITOR GPS STATUS AND WAIT FOR SAT LOCK gpspipe -w | grep -qm 1 '"mode":3' # PARSE THE CURRENT UTC TIME FROM THE GPSD OUTPUT UTCDATE=`gpspipe -w | grep -m 1 "TPV" | sed -r 's/.*"time":"([^"]*)".*/\1/' | sed -e 's/^\(.\{10\}\)T\(.\{8\}\).*/\1 \2/'` # SET THE PINEAPPLE'S CLOCK date -u -s "$UTCDATE" # LAUNCH KISMET DAEMON /usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode Monitor /usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan1 mode Monitor /usr/bin/kismet_server --daemonize I was having problems with gpspipe, it just would not work. I used opkg to uninstall and reinstall, but it still would not work. I ended up reflashing the firmware and starting fresh. It works like a charm now :)
  5. I found this on the Openwrt forums but am still trying to make heads or tails of it. I'm new to this whole linux thing :\ https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=14382 I know i'd have to change the gps device location to /dev/ttyUSB0 but i'm not sure what else id need to change or if it would even work. Thoughts?
  6. Yes, I already use the GPS for logging Lat and Long using Kismet but would also like to use it at bootup to set the time. NMEA 0183 also contains date and time data.
  7. Anyone know of a fancy set of commands that would allow me to set the system time based on the incoming GPS data while running kismet_server? I have it set up to run using the DIP switches but the system time is always 01/01/2014 00:00. I'd like for the file names to be correctly labeled and also have correct time info for when AP's are seen. I'm also going for portability so I'd really like to not have to SSH in and enter it in manually every time I plug it in. This is my current boot config: ifconfig wlan1 down; iwconfig wlan1 mode monitor; ifconfig wlan1 up; sleep 5; kismet_server Any ideas?
  8. I have two GPS dongles that I currently use, the first is an old Pharos iGPS-500. The second is a Globalsat BU-353 http://www.amazon.com/GlobalSat-BU-353-USB-GPS-Receiver/dp/B000PKX2KA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1427335339&sr=8-2&keywords=globalsat+bu-353+usb+gps The globalsat is much quicker at getting a 3D fix and it comes with a magnet mount built in as well as adhesive. Both use Prolific pl2303 usb to serial drivers that are already installed on the pineapple. If its not installed on yours, run the command "opkg install kmod-usb-serial-pl2303" you will need to edit the /etc/kismet/kismet.conf file to allow kismet to listen to your GPS. Add or edit the lines: gps=true gpstype=serial gpsdevice=/dev/ttyUSB0 Unless you have other USB devices hooked up, it should always be ttyUSB0. I also suggest changing the writeinterval=XX to something shorter than 300. If you're like me and use a battery, when the battery dies, you'll potentially loose your last 300 seconds of captures. I have mine set to 20 seconds and it seems to work fine. Hope this helps :)
  9. You can easily make your own map like that using kismet to capture and use giskismet to convert the .netkml file to a .kml file which you can open up in google earth. I set one of my dipswitch boot modes to automatically record AP names and GPS data using kismet_server. This is my current setup: "ifconfig wlan1 down; iwconfig wlan1 mode monitor; ifconfig wlan1 up; sleep 5; kismet_server" Here's a good tutorial on how to get kismet installed and set up on your wifi pineapple. I suggest changing the writeinverval= variable in the kismet.conf file to sometime shorter than 300 (default) because once you unplug it, you loose all the data that it captured since the last save. http://www.hackedexistence.com/project/wifi-pineapple/wardriving-with-wifi-pineapple-kismet.html
