Super Noob Question (Port forwarding)

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get into networking but I have little to no background knowledge, other than casually managing a windows home server, and decided to start with pentesting and to pick up a wifi pineapple to learn. But a problem here (Colombia) is that all routers are locked to prevent port forwarding via the router settings. So, before buying a pineapple I want to ask if any port forwarding will be need to access the pineapple and use it or any specific payloads that will need manual port forwarding of the internet connection itself from a router.

Once again, I am learning and have no knowledge of how things work (other than the pineapple university tutorials and a handful of Hak 5 episodes) but I thought why not start now. While being a network noob I do have computer skillsets so I'll manage fine other than my question, I'd really like to learn vulnerabilities and work on improving my campus' network with knowledge I will develop with my investment

Regards,

Luke

The pineapple is great at being compact and easily hideable. However, it's true that I learned more tinkering with the pineapple than I did just using Kali. I think that if you load VMware + Kali Linux on your school laptop + an Alfa card, you can have a great relationship between the two.

For instance, you can capture wpa2 handshakes with the pineapple and bring them back to your pc to crack them. Cracking passwords with just the pineapple is painfully slow.

As for the question, I cant think of a reason that I ever needed to open a port on anything besides the reverse ssh tunnel and that was a server at home.

I plan on having a dedicated laptop to run kali, or if I can find a 32/64bit device rather than an ARM load BT5 onto it. Perhaps a raspberry pi and buy a wifi dongle able to accept an antenna and has injection support just to have a rather mobile deployable box. Is it possible to crack wpa2 with a GPU to speed it up, I have quite a bit of power that would be a shame to not be able to use.
