    What does your CPU consumption look like during this period?



    Problem was resolved after viewing top. CPU consumption is actually only around 17% when running just PineAP. It pegs at 100% in the dashboard when it include Idle load of around 60-65%. The "overheating" (60c-70c) seemed to happen running from my Powered USB3.0 hub. It wasn't providing enough power (4.91v drawing 300ma) From the USB3.0 connected to my PC mainboard I get a full 5.05V drawing 300ma. Temps are lower too at around 50c. The heating doesn't appear to affect the Nano operation at all. It seems to work even better on the USB power brick provided in the Nano Tactical kit.

    It's not a solution but (if you haven't already) it may be wise to check first if the SD card doesn't like the nano or vice versa by trying a different SD card. I ask as when I got mine I had an issue with the SD card like you. I went through the reflashing / resetting stuff and then thought I'd try changing the card over. It's still in it today and I have never had any problems with it. They were both SanDisk Ultras (first was 64GB, second was 8GB)so it wasn't a brand thing. Also I think that since then I haven't used anything but the format utility in the nano itself either.

    I use a Sandisk Ultra 8gb with no issue. I don't know if there is a size limit on SDcards used in the Nano or not. One thing that comes to mind is that the Nano HATES SDcards formatted in Windows10. I formatted my Nano SDcard on my RPI running Kali Linux. No issues at all since.

    Unless the device is rebooting when it's warm, or is melting the chassis, it is probably doing okay temperature wise. The CPU% indicator in the UI is "inflated" because the call to get the CPU% generates usages itself. Use top to get a more accurate reading.

    Thank You! Real data is REAL! If you subtract the Idle% The true CPU usage is shown. With just the Pine AP running it's peaking at around 35%. This sure is a cool little tool!

    Today, I received my pineapple nano, a
    fter a long time waiting. Finally, I connected the nano to my computer and it’s boots up. After a few seconds, the connection over the USB port was initializing but never established. After trying to identify and retrieve a IP address the connection dropped. Over Wi-Fi there are no problems with the connection.

    So I upgrade the nano with the latest software, over Wi-Fi, hopefully to solve the ethernet over USB problem. Without any result. After logging in, the dashboard shows me a 100% CPU usage. I really don’t know why, the nano is completely default. The only configurations are credentials, to be clear, no modules are running.

    So, I load the recovery software on the nano. The same problem occurs. No ethernet over USB to the 172.16 address and dropping connections. The striking thing is, it doesn’t occurs with a connection to 192.168 address. It does drop after about ten minutes I think.

    An other problem is, the nano is booting after few minutes and comes in a loop of booting.

    In my opinion I tried everything to solve the problem; upgrading the nano, install recovery firmware, I updated my pc driver for USB over ethernet, tried with and without SD card.

    I tried to set up a connection from my MS Surface, Dell laptop and HP PC, all with the same results. I tried several power supplies, combinations and options. Read almost any item on the HAK5 forum

    I definitely need assistance to solve this problem or to determine it is a hardware failure because I really think it is.

    In short:

    ·       Reboot issue

    ·       Very high CPU usage

    ·       Ethernet over USB problems 172.16 address

    Anybody already faced a similar issue? It's kind of useless as it is right now. Who is able to help me?

    Did you set up the connection sharing in Windows? See https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010471434-WiFi-Pineapple-NANO-Windows-Setup

    also have a look at https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010555473-Internet-connection-sharing-over-Ethernet-in-Windows

    Most of the issues I've experienced with the Nano can be resolved by closer scrutiny of the provided documentation. The main issue I've experienced is plain and simple overheating after about 5-10 of operation without modules running. Still trying to find answers on that issue.

    I try your instructions and use gateway and 80. Hak c2 is awesome as looks like my router settings page. where do I enter the pass code?

    When the initial screen comes up it asks for Both the Token and License Key. just cut and paste the Token from the registration email and then enter the License key. You should then be on the main screen.

  6. Xavius, still baffled, says " So you're saying you terminate employees for suggesting that someone gets a basic foundation of networking and OS usage, prior to setting up a web server that's specific for C2? I'm curious, what exactly was so bad about what I wrote? Was it not kind enough? 🙂 "


    Xavius, you went straight to the Rude and didn't offer any kind of help or suggestion. Being rude to clients is a great way to not have any clients. The fact that escapes you says volumes. Poor leadership leads to poor morale. Being rude and dismissive to colleagues is a great way to sewer morale in the work environment. I've had as many as 100 technicians and engineers of varying skill levels working with me. If someone is willing to learn, and is coachable, I'll spend as much time as is needed to get them up to speed. I expect the same thing from ALL of my engineers as well. Your attitude is your best asset or worst liability. When someone is Neither trainable or coachable and is dismissive and rude to Clients and/or co workers? You're Gone like Pizza on Friday Sport!

  7. Xavious! Thanks for all your help and useful input. Those of us with mind reading skills really enjoy your insights. In 31 years of IT and Network administration I've known many folks like yourself. Fired every single one of them.

    X:\Downloads\c2-1.1.1_community\c2_community-windows-64.exe -hostname -listenport 80
    Where -hostname can equal your gateway on your network or an actual URL. _listenport for browser in this case

    If all goes well you should see something like this:

    X:\Users\You>X:\Downloads\c2-1.1.1_community\c2_community-windows-64.exe -hostname -listenport 80
    [*] Initializing Hak5 Cloud C2
    [*] Initial setup detected. Setup token: UXXX-MXXX-CXXX-BXXX
    [*] Running Hak5 Cloud C2

    Go to your browser and type "localhost" without quotes, follow the prompts to register and login.

    You'll need the Setup token and the license key to complete the process.

    Hope this helps

  8. "The Lan Turtle is currently offline. Please check your internet connection"

    So I followed all the recommendacities, no joy. I enabled and configured ICS for HTTPS and HTTP. I now have connectivity on a shared internet connection with my Winblows7 pc. I made a short slide show that shows both the current state of my network and the the lights on the turtle. I have connectivity. I can ping the LT ONCE and it pukes. I still cannot download modules.
