The Golden Way Or Not, Is It Working?

On an personal note Darren told me to post this issue at the forum in hope of getting some feedback from the public..

Not saying that Darren could not help, but he is rather bussy..

Anyhoop, this is going to be a long one, with lots of pictures..

Forword:

Recently I have had som issues regarding the pineapple and last time Darren had to correct some ip forward thingy on my laptop..

I was then running BlackBox which by the way is awsome.. And we finally concluded that it may have had some problems related to the program subterfuge (shown at latest Defcon)

So, what next, oh yea.. As the huge hacking geek I am, I could not stay away from the latest Backtrack 5r3 when that came out, just had to download the distro and install this on my

Blackbox laptop well aware of removing every minor "fix" Darren may have had done to it.. Reason: Well I though a fresh clean install of Backtrack would for sure be able to handle

the pineapple, especially after I just upgraded it to firmware version 1.61

To cut the story short, I ended up removing the Backtrack distro and re-installing a fresh 64bit version of BackBox as the new distro far from exeeded my expectation of it, they had not

even fixed the black screen of death LOL.. Well to be frank the main reason I dropped BT is that the pineapple did not work properly in it, more than once I got a white "unavailable screen" in my browser

especially when pressing either the "reveal public ip" or "status", "logs" etc. menu items.

I though this may have had some problems related to the WICD which is default in BT, I even tried wicd stop before running ./wp4.sh with no luck.

Anyway, after dropping BT and installing the good old BackBox I decided to give the pineapple some love once again for testing purposes at my home network.

Now let it be said, I have done this before, and I may be a self claimed noob and I was pretty sure I would get the same result in Backbox as I did in BT, indicating that I may need to flash the pineapple (the horror)

Anyway, this time I fired up the pineapple running battery juice only (sorry but just got to test before going down at the local coffee shop, especially when snubs was to kind to send me some usb to 5mm cable)

So according to Darren, where is a detailed algorythm on what the hell I do, did and think is correct and I leave it all up to you to give the feedback either good or bad (as long as this geek can learn from it)

This is what I did..

1. sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop

2. cd Downloads

3. sudo wget http://www.wifipineapple.com/wp4.sh

4. chmod +x wp4.sh

5. sudo ./wp4.sh

Enter on all choices

6. sudo /etc/init.d/networking start

7. sudo networking start

8. ifconfig

screen2.png

9. ping 172.16.42.1

screen4.png

10. ping 172.16.42.42

screen5.png

11. reveal public ip (did who my correct public ip)

screen6.png

12. started karma (don't mind the with menu, just selected)

screen7.png

Probe request are now starting to come in.

probes are identifying my own wifi network as well

13. Pressing the "Pineapple Bar"

screen9.png

14. Pressing the "Status"

screen8.png

15. Pressing the "Logs"

screen11.png

16. Starting URL snarf

Tried to surf on my iPad3 i.e logging into gmail account etc.

Could not find any indication that URL snarf was picking up anything

17. Stopped URL snarf

18 Stopped KARMA

19 Closed the browser

20 Unplugged the power of the pineapple since there is no on/off button.

21. Rebooted the pc since I did not know if there was any services related to pineapple running.

So how did I do? Is this the correct way to do it, and most of all, does it seem to be working?

PS..

Did notice some error message on the log while still running Karma, but that one I did not manage to screencapture of course.. Said something about could not write to that and that location..

Can't remember though

Its getting internet through wlan0 connected to my wifi network..

eth0 is connected via PoE on the pineapple

I would stop after:

5. sudo ./wp4.sh

Enter on all choices

your pineapple should have internet and therefor done, no??

What you mean? Should I stop here and not continue with point 6 and 7?

Correct me If I am wrong, but does the wp4.sh script pull the wlan0 up and therefore connects it to the previously known wifi? Or should the wifi that I intend to use be hooked up before running wp4.sh?

the script does nothing to your wlan0 or internet interface other than set up iptables/routing to eth0 the pineapple interface.

so you only have to have wlan0 connected before running the script, if it goes down you can re-connect. my home wifi is wpa2 and I like to use wpa_suplicant because wicd as you are already aware likes to only have one interface connected usually eth0 before wlan0, so it drops your internet connection.

1. disable wicd

2. connect to wifi (wlan0)

3. connect pineapple

4. run script

done.

I want to note that you can use wicd before running the script just to get your wlan0 connect to your home wifi but you must disable it after it is connected to use wp4.sh.
