PPTPd

Hey guys, I wanted to install pptpd on my wifi pineapple. I use it at home as a router, and when I'm out of the city and want my home IP, I would like to connect to it.

I usually do this with an old laptop running Ubuntu, but it uses quite a lot of power, and I have to let it open for the entire time I'm gone.

Now, with my Pineapple, first off, I can either run it on batteries (though not recommended if I leave town for a day :D) or on the wall adapter. It also uses less energy.

However, when I've tried to install the "pptpd" package with opkg, I get:

Collected errors:

* satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for pptp:
* kernel (= 3.7.9-1-1330a58d23bacdfe88b5915ab311c608) * kernel (= 3.7.91-1330a58d23bacdfe88b5915ab311c608) *
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package pptpd.

How do I upgrade my kernel? Is there any way to do this without an UART device? And if yes, could you point me to an url from where I can download the right kernel version for my Pineapple?

Also, please keep in mind that I need the functionality of the Pineapple (infusion, monitoring, etc), while having support of PPTPd. I don't want to sacrifice one or another.

Thanks!

What version firmware are you running?

You will need to upgrade to firmware version 2.8.0 for stabilized packages.

I'm on 2.8.0. That's the first thing I did when I got my Pineapple :D Upgrading & opkg infusion installation...

So is there a way to install the right kernel version to support PPTPd without losing support for current infusions / without UART cable?

I've managed to install it and configure it to route the traffic using:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

The IP of the Pineapple is the DMZ Host in my main router, and the Pineapple is connected via ethernet to the router.

I can check that ports from the Pineapple are visibile on the outside by going to my main router's external IP and seeing exactly what I type in the Phishing page editor. Eg: port 80 works from the outside.

However, when I disconnect my iPhone from my wireless network and try to connect to my router's external IP (which internally binds to the Pineapple), it gives a time out after about 15 seconds, without authentication failures or anything.

Just so you know, I've started the process manually after running that iptables command, and I can see the "pptpd" in the Resources list for the processes.

I also configured the pptpd.conf and chap-secrets like I would configure an ubuntu machine. I can copy that config if it's needed :)

How can I fix this? :(
