  1. I'm also having the same issue. I would also like to have the Pineapple use the DHCP provided DNS server too. That would help with portability and connecting it to new networks.
  2. Why not attach a magnet to it and place it UNDER the table with the antennas laying parallel to the box. Starbucks has metal tables so it would attach nicely underneath and with the antennas flat against the table, it's low profile. Or better yet, since it's connected to your notebook, put a big sticker on it that reads "WIFI Hotspot Booster". Heck, you might even get people WANTING to connect to it.
  3. OK, I've made some progress. In my previous post, I forgot to mention that I was running the latest version of the firmware (2.6.1). Once I did a firmware recovery and went back to vs 2.4.1 things started working. I was able to send emails, but it still squawks about not having an SD card. I'm still having trouble getting reports to generate in /root. They do come to me by email though. But when I check the save copy in /root option, and SSH into root, the reports aren't there. Is there another root directory it could be storing these? Can it both send by mail and store or one or the other? Or is it either or? What am I missing here? Also, I'm noticing that it can't find my mail server by name, only IP address. If it's hooked up to eth0 WAN via RJ45 and getting a DHCP address, wouldn't it also pull the DNS info too and use my nameserver? Or, do I just need to enter it in the /etc/hosts file? Thanks for your help.
  4. Is this a site you host in-house or on a hosting service somewhere? If it's in-house, I'd upgrade to a better firewall that handles this sort of thing and other types of attacks. There are many out there at various price points that handle intrusion protection. If its a hosting service, then the DOS should be affecting more than your site if those server resources are shared. I'd either get them involved to find out where the DDoS is coming from and block it, or find another hosting provider. To answer your question specifically, I'd go with an all-in-one firewall appliance that physically sits between you and your network.
  5. I recently bought a WiFi Pineapple Tetra and started playing with it. I'm having a few issues that I need a bit of guidance in. I set it up. It scans, it's also connected to my LAN via ethernet. It receives the news bulletins and I can ssh into it so I know it's connected. I can update patches and it pulls data from wifi scans, load modules and dependencies. However... The reporting log shows multiple repeats of these two errors: 2019-09-10-19:00: Failed to save to SD card - no SD card found 2019-09-10-19:19: Failed to send email to email@address.com (this isn't the real address) The second error is result of my trying to send a test email to my mail server on same subnet as eth interface. Default route set and DNS reloaded. 1. Keeps claiming it can't write to SD card. Is there an SD card? There's no access to it in the web interface and it's not mounted in /mnt and there doesn't appear to be a dev/sd* device either. FAQs don't show an SD card installed or even optional so I'm a bit confused. 2. May be related to 1 but I can't generate any reports. There are no reports in /root which it claims is the default directory it writes to. 3. Can't email reports. When I configure test, it doesn't seem to work. Can't find log of email in syslog or mail.log and can't find the MTA logs on Tetra. Also neither my firewall or MTA can see the email being received or rejected in their logs. Which interface does it use for mail output? Default route? I have the default route setup on my internal network via ethernet. I can get updates and news from Hak5 on Dashboard and I can SSH into the box so I know I'm connected. Am I just generating reports wrong and that prevents the email from being sent, even with test, or is it trying to write to SD card, or something else? I've tried the email server config with mailserver name and IP using ports 25 and 587. Any push in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Trapman, thanks. I'll check that out. Looks like what I was thinking about at first glance. Initially was thinking USB powered via PoE, but this looks much nicer. Thanks for the tip.
  7. Was thinking of a device I found that goes up to 24w for PoE to USB. - Power Delivery (PD) voltage range; 5V/2.39A, 9V/2.07A, 12V/1.51A, 15V/1.27A, 20.0V/1.11A. From what you mentioned earlier, this might barely be enough or barely not enough.
  8. To guarantee enough power, I'd more than likely use a PoE injector instead of PoE switch for the power and run it to a PoE to USB adapter. I've had other radios and big PTZ cameras require a separate injector rather than just basic voltage off the switch. Some outdoor devices I've used had sealed antenna that looked like test tubes hanging off the bottom. Also another important tip... make sure all connections come up through the bottom of the device and make sure every wire or cable running to the device has a drip loop under it so water running down the wire gets caught at the sagging drip loop below the box instead of running all the way to the connector. I've seen some PoE to USB adapters so I assume that would be where I'd start for power, maybe using an injector to guarantee power requirements. Was thinking about panel antennas eventually or going for outdoor rated antennas at the bottom of box. My main concern is heat build up. Since this is inside a box, maybe a heat sync or something? Is heat a problem with this appliance? They sell tactical bags to stuff these into so surely it can't be that bad but this would be baking in the sun everyday?
  9. Does anyone have any advice about putting a Pineapple Tetra into a weatherproof sealed NEMA box and mounting it on a pole? I was hoping to get a PoE injector to USB adapter to power it off PoE, mount the Tetra in a box and run the antennas outside? Can the stock antennas be used outside or do I need more weatherproofed omni antennas? Also, what about heat dissipation? Does the Tetra get hot? Also what are the specs needed if use panel antennas? Some of these questions may become obvious when my Tetra Pineapple arrives in the mail, but I wanted to get ahead of the curve. Another question, is there any webhook api that could be added on the Tetra to send a json packet to another server? Or would I have to send data by sql server to a remove mySQL server?
  10. I would be curious if the Pineapple could circumvent randomized MACs as well. I understand that all randomization ends when connecting to an SSID or other device and at that point only real MAC addresses are used. It's that factor that lead me to the Pineapple. I also heard that the iPhone will only beacon for hidden devices. This makes me think that a list of popular SSIDs like ATTWIFI or Starbucks, etc. being beaconed from the Pineapple to lure a phone to connect would be the best thing to test first. Then you can know that all devices connecting to the pineapple would be real addresses. My Pineapple arrives next week and that's the first test I'm doing. Now, to come up with a list of broadly used SSID names like ATTWIFI or HHonors, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  11. So it's the antennas that raise suspicion, not the big pineapple logo with Hak5 badge on it, assuming you have a tactical bag? Disguise the antenna or add an extension cable so you can run the antenna along a seam instead of directly attached to the unit. Or stick other tall objects out the corners like a ruler or a flashlight to disguise the antenna?
