Hello all, I am borrowing a WiFi Pineapple Mark V from my professor to do a small hacking project. I assume someone else used this device before me, because when I started going through the steps for a first-time setup in the manual, I found that instead of seeing this start screen: ...I saw a different screen asking me to put in a username (default "root") and password. Instead of doing what probably would have been the easier option and asking my professor what the password was, I decided to reset the pineapple and start from the top. At first, things seemed to be going as expected. The red, orange, and blue LEDs blinked on cue, I connected to the pineapple through a spare TP-LINK device I had laying around, and I was able to ping and later connect to 172.16.41.1:1471 after setting my main wireless connection to "share" with the TP-LINK and changing the TP-LINK's default IP to 172.16.42.42 (I can ping that address too). However, once I got to this screen: ...things stopped working as expected. I have tried several times with three different web browsers to set a password on this screen, and every time it loads a white screen with the message "The CGI process did not produce any response" on it. I have tried powering off and rebooting the device, and reset it a second time to make sure. Can someone tell me where I've gone wrong?
