Hello. I was trying to run iso kali linux in virtual box but it couldn't install right and my system was freezing during installation. So, i tried ova file of Kali that was fine to install and run at virtual box. Everyrhing was fine with that ova file of Kali Linux in virtual box until i tried to get Kali updated and upgrated. During this process the system was freezing so i closed the machine at virtual machine. When i tried to run again Kali it was like something changed.. no icons and it was asking me all the time to enter username and password. I deleted Kali Linux and tried to create a new project on vm but vm didnt recognize/appear that Kali Linux ova file anymore. Frist question.. is it possible to run Kali Linux iso file with VB or it must be the ova file which is for VB? Second question. After update and upgrade is it possible that it ruined my ova file and thats why vb can find it anymore and open it? Thanks.
I am really really brand new in Linux. I recently set up a lab for pen testing, but stuck by a few networking issues. Host window10, guest Kali linux, eth0 and eth1(both are in same subnet, also same as host-only adapter ), use both host-only and bridged modes. there are several questions for help: 1. firstly I enabled host-only network mode in virtualbox for Kali. By using eth0, I can ping host-only adapter on host successfully, but cannot ping host ethernet adapter. I think that is how host-only mode works. then I enabled Bridged mode, I thought there should be a new ethernet interface showing up on host, however, it didn't(until now only two interfaces on adapter settings, one is host ethernet interface, the other is host-only) . my question is whether it is normal... 2. continued the above scenario...I assumed that is normal...then in bridge mode of virtualbox setting, I selected host ethernet adapter name from dropdown list as the one for bridge. Also configure eth0, eht1, host-only adapter and host ethernet adapter into the same subnet. When I bring eth1 down and bring eth0 up, from host terminal, I cannot ping ip for eth0, but from Kali terminal I can ping host machine and 188.8.131.52, cannot ping host-only adapter, cannot open up google.com in browser(it really confused me...); if I bring eth0 down and bring eth1 down, can only ping host-only adapter. so it appears that eth0 only works for Bridge and eth1 only works for host-only, is that right ? 3. I noticed some posts mentioning that there should be a bridged connection between host-only adapter and one local area connection(also an adapter, in my scenario, host ethernet adapter is supposed to take this role), but I don't think it is true. can you guys advise ? 4, sorry, my question or description of the question are a little mess...words in bold are questions. before entering the real pen testing, I already got so much confusion, thanks a loooooot !
Hi, thank you for viewing this topic. I was browsing about proxy chains + vpn's .... Myth or not ... Apparently there was some legal issue with that .. also i'm not sure why or how the effect would be.... So if I was running windows, *ran linux with (virtual box), installed the same, or another vpn.. and repeat the process... Would this connect 1 to the other(chaining sub os vpn's to run a large tunnel) I think i'm anwsering my own question here. *if i'm running one os with a vpn ) I would just be connecting, threw just that os's vpn...(not chaining just using the same vpn like normal)... Caught a article on the whole subject.... Is this a wrong or right statement ? *Dreams of coding a vpn chain system* *drooling* There was that new turtle and from my understanding it connects threw a cloud network , I do not think its exactly what im dreaming of here... However it deffently conquers the use of proxy chaining with extra security all that.... I was questioning this also having a firewall + another os firewall...... maybe another a good piece hardware or software....I see alot of over-stimulation, offcourse because any firewall with proper time can do alot.... Though one firewall has one attack from the other .... Interesting concept however, I think it's not one complete network. It's the same network with different loaded software blah blah blah *:)... So i'm pretty sure not to offend that this statement might be a joke or invalid... -Hi ho rappy away
I was wanting to get into looking at Bluetooth penetration testing, but I couldn't figure out how to bridge the Bluetooth adapter through Virtual Box into the OS; it keeps saying no Bluetooth device found. Anyone know how?
