Mk3 Karma Is Currently Disabled.

Recommended Posts

I had the same issue. I decided to SSH into the router a manually view the config/script files. I found that after making a change via the web interface that a "^M" was being added to the end of every line. I simply removed the "^M" and everything worked fine.

The config/script files are located at /overlay/www/pineapple/

Hope that helps.

Just replied in detail to your query at http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?showtopic=23446&st=0&gopid=189727entry189727

I also address this on the wifipineapple.com FAQ at http://www.wifipineapple.com/doku.php#faq

Once your karma.conf has been cleansed of the offending ^M characters Karma will start just fine. Either follow the directions in the above links to manually SSH in and use vi to edit /etc/hostapd/karma.conf

To do so with vi, first ssh to the pineapple (on Windows use Putty or on mac/linux issue "ssh root@")

The username is root and the default password is pineapplesareyummy (you may want to change this later on)

Now that you're logged into the pineapple issue "vi /etc/hostapd/karma.conf"

In vi you'll notice the offending "^M" characters at the ends of each line. Enter insert mode by pressing "i" and use your arrow keys to navigate the cursor to just after the "^M". Press backspace. Lather, rinse, repeat. Once all of the "^M"s have been removed press ESCAPE to exit insert mode, press ":", type "X" and press ENTER.

For more on using vi check out this tutorial: http://www.unix-manuals.com/tutorials/vi/vi-in-10-1.html

I'm sure between this post and the two linked above you'll get all squared away. Cheers!
