What am I missing? Cannot connect through SSID.


Recommended Posts

I have the 2.7.0 version of the Pineapple firmware. I have installed sitesurvey, opkgmanager, sslstrip, status and Network manager.

My goal was to test the sslstrip module. So I fired up the Pineapple, and connected to the SSID, but I got nowhere.

My Pineapple is directly connected to the network via a switch to port eth1.

Two questions here:

1. Normally if I'm in the field, the pineapple will route through my laptop, correct? (I'm guessing via eth0).

2. Do I need to enamle ICS via the Network Monitor in order to connect to the Internet via the Pineapple's SSID?

I enabled the ICS from wlan0 to eth1, and confirmed the following iptables rules:

root@Pineapple:~# iptables -nL

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)

target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)

target prot opt source destination

ACCEPT all -- state NEW


Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)

target prot opt source destination

The routing table also supports the use of the Default Gateway.

root@Pineapple:~# netstat -rn

Kernel IP routing table

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface UG 0 0 0 eth1 U 0 0 0 br-lan U 0 0 0 eth1

Unfortunately, my SSH Connection from my Laptop hangs up, as well as the web connections to websites are not working.

What am I missing?

I resolved this problem by using a Linux Based VM to route the Wireless traffic through the PC.

The Pineapple worked well when connected directly to a netowkr, but attempting to permit the pineapple to connect to the internet via the Laptop (running Windows 7), simpley does not work. The reason for this is that Microsoft has removed the routing capabilities on the Windows 7 personal platforms, requiring a license to a server based version in order to perform the same functionality that was possible on Windows XP.

The short answer is to install the VMWare player, and run either backtrack, or your favorite version of Linux to configure the interfaces, and then use the wp4.sh script.

Hope that helps future Pineapple users.
