Thanks for your help I was easily able to make the changes. I also found some settings online for me to enable encryption.
I will describe what I am doing and hopefully you can find my mistake or let me know it isn't possible, deauth (i will work on that part later). I am trying to have my phone connect to my AP instead of my home AP. So current setup is me downstairs with the Pineapple next to me while my home AP is upstairs. I'm thinking pineapple AP will win the race condition and I should connect to that first.
Here are the WPA settings inside of " hostapd-mana.conf":
Here are the settings inside of "/etc/hostapd-psk":
00:00:00:00:00:00 password <- this isn't the password of my home AP but didn't think it needed to be either.
When i run "launch-mana" i get this inside of putty:
wlan1: STA 00:ae:fa:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: authenticated
wlan1: STA 00:ae:fa:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: associated (aid 1)
The above looks good to me, but when i go to my phone it says:
connecting and then says authentication error or something similar to that.
Now my question is, is this the expected result or am i doing something wrong? I see all over that creating a fake WPA2 AP and deauthing a client and having them successfully connect to you and browse the internet is not possible because of the 4-way handshake. However, I have a friend who says it is possible and he has done it. So can you tell me if I am doing something incorrectly or it just isn't possible?
If it isn't possible then that means you would only be able to get people to connect to your open AP (automatically) that are sending out probes for previously connected OPEN APs only?
My next question as I am still new to the Wifi Pineapple and hostapd. Once my phone connects to me besides seeing it scroll by on the putty screen is there any place i can go to see clients connected (similar to the pineapple where you see how many clients connected to you)? I also love the dwall and urlsnarf module in the wifi pineapple because who doesn't like to cleanly see the pics and urls. Is there a location where the URL's get stored within hostapd? I saw the credentials.txt but that's all i found.
I guess another way of putting it would be once my phone connects can i log into the browser of my pineapple and take over from there or will that part have to wait until a module gets developed.
wow sorry for all the questions but just trying to learn as much as i can with my new toy.
