doyouhas Posted July 15, 2009 Share Posted July 15, 2009 Ok so, I am a long time watcher of the show and although I have played around with breaking WEP encryption on some neighboring access points and only briefly poking around in there, I don't have a whole lot of experience with network analysis. So I decided I would download Back Track 4, throw it on a DVD and head over to Barnes and Noble to scout around their network and see what I could find. And what I did find, was disappointing. First of all, although the network itself is unencrypted, just connecting to an ATT hotspot does not give you access to the internet. I'm not sure what they use to achieve this. I remember seeing an episode in which Mubix did a piece about tunneling DNS and he said the one prerequisite was you needed to be able to ping a website and get a response. I pinged google.com...no response. The thing is, I'm not so interested in having access to the internet, just in identifying hosts on the network and running some potential exploits against them, or just saving the entire session the a capture file. I would totally appreciate being pointed in the right direction so I could find some entry level information on the topics I just talked about. I'm not looking for a handout or anything just some help is all. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
