  1. Just unboxed my nano, and went with 2.6.2...so far, i have been able to follow the user guide, and have it setup as "FREE-SFO-WIFI", and passing all traffic through to one of my home wifi routers. Just discovering the lack of 5ghz....guess that is why there is a "Tetra" .... Should have more closely RTFM.
  2. Thanks for noodling on this... and yes I checked, but I just checked again, and as indicated below, the system has installed the driver, and it is working......is " Location ID: 0x14100000 / 8" a clue? I just wanna see dinosaurs... (ripping that off from here 1994) 😉 CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Controller: Product ID: 0xea60 Vendor ID: 0x10c4 (Silicon Laboratories, Inc.) Version: 1.00 Serial Number: 0001 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/s Manufacturer: Silicon Labs Location ID: 0x14100000 / 8 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 100 Extra Operating Current (mA): 0
  3. Hi, just joining in the fun... Grew up in New York, now living in Northern Cali. Got started back in the phone freaking days (1970's), built my first PC (XT-compatible) in 1982 with an acoustic coupler modem (300 baud) and joined Compuserve...also connected to my schools mainframe for giggles and grins (SUNY at Buffalo). Decades later I became a network guy, ended up working with a UNIX company in Santa Cruz, and really began to understand "permissions". Ended up gravitating toward security, and that kinda stuck. When virtualization started becoming popular, I realized that most people would run their VMWare environments "naked", with no security inside the vswitch. I helped launch a starup called Catbird, security for virtual infrastructure (now the appgate.com "Software Defined Perimeter"). Thanks in advance for your help, and let me know if I can be of service with one of your challenges! Best, Howeird
  4. I should add that this I am trying this on an iMac Kernel Version 19.6.0 MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.6
  5. Hi...first time user, old Unix hack from long ago...some knowledge... 😉 I am trying to setup my O.MG Cable out of the box, and following the guide here: https://github.com/O-MG/O.MG_Cable-Firmware/wiki I have attempted using each of the three flashers, with same results. It seems like it does not see the USBtoUART device, even though it appears listed in /dev howard@imac /dev % ls -l tty.* crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 18, 2 Aug 9 01:49 tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 18, 0 Aug 9 02:43 tty.SLAB_USBtoUART crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 18, 4 Aug 9 01:58 tty.usbserial-0001 I removed the device and confirmed the devices are not present. Here is the output of the scripts: <<< ALL FIRMWARE FILES LOCATED >>> <<< PROBING OSX DEVICES FOR O.MG-CABLE-PROGRAMMER >>> esptool.py v2.6 Serial port /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART Connecting........_____....._____....._____....._____....._____....._____....._____ esptool.py v2.6 Serial port /dev/cu.usbserial-0001 <<< O.MG-CABLE-PROGRAMMER WAS NOT FOUND IN DEVICES, YOU MAY NEED TO INSTALL THE DRIVERS FOR CP210X USB BRIDGE >>> VISIT: [ https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers ] I did confirm that I have Python 3.8x installed, and updated it's pip: howard@imac /dev % python3 -m pip --version pip 20.2.1 from /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pip (python 3.8) From what I can tell, it either can't find the device, or it is looking for the wrong one...help? Thanks in advance...looking forward to stumbling my way through a bunch of Hak5 tools over the next few days, so any pointers greatly appreciated! H
  6. Hi, first time post, please go easy... I stepped out of cybersecurity in 2015 to raise my kids. They both go into high school this year... Whatever that means...and now that I don't have to drive them to and from school everyday make lunch breakfast etc, I'm transitioning from full-time dad to remote worker. I'd like to get back into pen testing Wi-Fi testing, etc, and started putting together some tool kits from the hack 5 website. While that stuff is on its way I was curious what people suggest regarding a main workstation. I would like to be able to run Windows, run Linux, have local virtualization and a decent amount of storage. Also what's in demand in the San Francisco Bay area? What courses are certifications would help me get restarted? Thanks in advance!
