  1. I've had my Tetra for a bit and after a few hiccups (operator error) I have been able to work my way through the set up. I have PineAP harvesting and broadcasting SSIDs but clients can't seem to connect to the Tetra. I've tried Windows 10 and 8, Linux, Android, OS X and iOS clients and while the devices can see the rogue networks they can't connect to them. Any help would be appreciated.

  2. So I have they y USB cable plugged into 2 USB 3.0 ports and I have solid blue light that periodically go out. I also have an ethernet cable plugged into the ethernet port but I can't access the web interface. Missed the earlier post about the battery. When I purchased the battery as part of the kit for the tetra I didn't really expect that it wouldn't have enough juice to run the tetra. My bad.

  3. Tetra arrived today. Anxious to try it out so I plugged in the mini USB USB from the charger to the UART and eventually got a solid blue light. However when I try to navigate to -- nothing. I have an active ethernet link but nothing. When I plug in the barrel cable from the Pineapple Juice 15000 --- nothing -- no lights nothing. Any help appreciated.

  4. I did. I set up autossh with the Turtle attached to my computer's USB port. Confirm that I can connect to the Turtle using my VPS over the LAN. Unplug the Turtle and plug it into a separate power source and I get the connection refused message. I delete the entry for known_hosts on the VPS and sometimes I will then be able to connect but if it is powered down again no way to bring ssh tunnel back to life. I've tried it with 3 different VPSs (Ubuntu, Debian and FreeBSD). Same on all of them. Works briefly but once the Turtle is powered down, I get the connection refused message. Deleting known_hosts may fix it, but only once.

    Essentially this renders the Turtle unable to be deployed.

  5. So the problem isn't resolved. I got the Lan Turtle stuck when i typed "if config" rather then "ifconfig" to get its IP address. I pulled the power and thereafter the "connection refused" message again.

    My guess is the that the sudden disappearance of the one end of the tunnel leaves the VPS or the Turtle in a broken state but I don't know how to fix it. I rebooted both the Turtle and the VPS to no effect. I disabled and reenabled autossh on the Turtle also to no effect.

    I am using a FreeBSD VPS but the expect the problem was the same for the Ubuntu VPS. Somehow after the power loss, the ssh tunnel isn't being properly established.

    If a guru here could offer a suggestion, I would appreciate it.

  6. I think I resolved the problem. It was a permissions issue. When setting up the sshfs from my home computer to my VPS, I changed the permissions of the home folder that the lan turtle was writing to so that the Lan turtle and my home computer could read from and write to the same folder on the VPS. In that process, I changed the permissions of the home folder of the turtle user which included the hidden .ssh folder and that busted things.

  7. Guys

    I had auto ssh set up and working reliably using an Ubuntu 14.04 server on digital ocean. Then it stopped working and I got the connection refused message. Set the whole thing up again using a new Ubuntu server on digital ocean and same thing -- worked then stopped. Figured I'd try freeBSD. Same thing. Worked for a while then stopped with a connection refused message. I reinstalled the operating system but now no matter what I do I get the connection refused error. It's strange. SSHFS continues to work, but unless I connect the turtle to my USB port, I can't get in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  8. So you can get a connection using the following steps as a stop gap measure

    1. ) copy the text from your .ovpn file and paste it into the configuration box in the openvpn module.

    2. ) make your way back to the opening page of the turtle gui and exit

    3. ) at the command prompt enter the following: /usr/sbin/openvpn --daemon --config /etc/openvpn/my-vpn.conf

    I have the autossh module configured so if necessary I can rerun that command if openvpn is stopped for some reason.

  9. So I tried copying the .ovpn to a directory on the turtle (/root/Downloads) and ran the following command --> openvpn --config /root/Downloads/yertle.ovpn. It seemed promising at first and then ended with "Initialization Sequence Completed" and nothing -- no prompt no nothing. Looking at /etc/openvpn/my-vpn.config, it was empty. Don't know where to go from here.

  10. Just setting up my new turtle. I created an OpenVpn server in the cloud and now I am trying to configure the openvpn module to connect to it. I have the .ovpn file and I copied its contents into the configuration box but that didn't work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
