  1. Is there a repo I can add to get a newer openvpn-ssl package than the default one opkg finds (2.3.6)? I'm trying to connect to my vpn provider from the nano, but it fails because my VPN provider offers IPv6, which the nano does not support and OpenVPN 2.3.6 exits with a fatal error if the provider offers it and the device doesn't support it. They added some bypass switches in 2.4, but I can't seem to find a openwrt compatible distribution. Any pointers? Either to fix the IPv6 issue or update to a more compatible OpenVPN. TIA
  2. Drilled out the holes last night, everything fits nice and tight like it should now. I used a 5/16" drill, it removed a very small amount of material and worked perfectly.
  3. That's exactly the operation I intend to do. Thanks for the opening tips!
  4. I purchased the new right angle antennas for the Nano and they don't seem to connect properly. The SMA connectors are bottoming out on hte plastic shell of the nano, causing the antennas to be very loose. I'm pretty sure they center pin of the SMA is not making contact in it's socket. I was thinking of removing the shell and enlarging the hole in the plastic shell so the connector could seat properly, is there a guide or a video that shows where the clips are so I can non-destructively open the nano? TIA!
  5. I use a rMPB with Kali under Fusion. The easiest way is connect the nano after Kali is running and tell vmWare to connect the device to Kali and not the OSX. Then you can just run the wp6 script and everything works pretty well. I've also done it by connecting to the Mac, turning off assigning IP to that interface in MacOS then giving maping that NIC to a virtual switch in vmWare, but that's considerably more complicated.
  6. Thanks dustbyter, that looks like a great start on exactly what I'm looking for. I dropped it into my landing page and it's a good chunk of what I'd like to accomplish, thanks! -Mike
  7. I have an odd use case and I'd like to employ my Pineapple. I'd like to have connected clients think they have internet access, even though they won't. For instance, I know when an iOS device connects to an access point, it pings captive.apple.com looking for the world "Success" to know if that connection has valid internet access and is not a captive portal requiring further steps to activate. Microsoft and Android have something similar that I would also want to emulate, although I haven't yet researched their exact details. What would be the best way to emulate this on a nano? I presume I would need a DNS server, and a web server of some kind. My end goal is to have clients connect to my Pineapple, then any request they make be answered and return no/random data. Anyone done anything like this with a nano yet?
  8. The Y-Cable does support data, at least mine does. It's the MicroUSB cable that is power only.
  9. Looks like a nice platform! Does the TETRA use RP-SMA antennas like the Nano or normal SMA like the Mark 5? Thanks!
  10. Alternatively run a VM on your MAC with pfSense and route the pineapple's USB nic directly to pfSense to get your shared Internet. Then you can either use another VM to talk to your pineapple, or route the MAC's network through the PFSense VM. My nano hasn't shown up yet but that should work. I've done similar operations it in other similar situations.
  11. I don't know about phoneman, but I'd love some basic intro to doing things without modules. Even on my MK5 with modules, the ability to understand a bit more about what they are doing and how would be great. I have a basic understanding of Linux, and I get that "it's just linux!" but lots of the tools used are quite unfamiliar to me. As a Windows admin I understand the concepts but the nuts and bolts always need a different wrench. I think some overview tutorials in this vein would be beneficial to a lot of people.
