Internet Connection Sharing NOT working in Kali Linux?


Recommended Posts

Hello !

Yesterday i received my Pineapple Mark V by DHL and i have immediately start using it. Upgraded it to 1.2.0 and checked out the web-GUI on 172.16.42.1:1471. Everything seemed to work well, until.. i used the wp5.sh script for sharing my internet connection (wlan0) from my Kali Linux (no VM) with the Pineapple.

What i have:

A working internet connection on my Kali Linux (192.168.0.141)

A working connection from my Kali Linux to the Pineapple (172.16.42.42)

A working GUI on my Kali Linux at 172.16.42.1:1471.

I do not have any internet connection on my Pineapple:

Also, i can connect to my Pineapple by WiFi with any computer, but i can only connect to my Pineapple (172.16.42.1:1471). If i try to go online, there is no connection !! Any ideas?

This is the output of the script:

And what interface name is your Kali machine really using for wifi? I think a quick ifconfig or iwconfig at the command line will give you what you need.

The internet-facing nterface of my Kali Linux is: wlan0.

And have you killed the wicd process? Or whatever the network manager is named in Kali these days..

Edit: Link to why...

I haven't killed the wicd process. But i do not have any problems with my connection which are mentioned in your link. I can connect to internet via my wlan0 and i can connect to the Pineapple via eth0 from my Kali machine. If i open Wireshark and start listening on eth0 i get the data of the GUI (HTTP and TCP) of the Pineapple. Is this correct?

Could the iptables be wrong on my Kali machine? Because the iptables on the Pineapple are not affected by the wp5.sh script.

The problem is networkmanager may change your eth0 ip address since the pineapple is a dhcp server.

If that is the case, shouldnt i see this when i run ifconfig? My eth0-ip is 172.16.42.42 (gotten from the pineapple) and i can connect to the pineapple AND internet.

Does anybody have any clue? I have reset the Pineapple, cleared iptables of my Kali machine and tried a lot.. But no effect! I can connect via wlan1 on my Pineapple to an AP and get a internet-connection, but then i can't see any data on my Kali (eth0) of that connection. I am starting to think that there's something wrong with the Pineapple. The iptables of the Pineapple are full of rules and appear to be correct. But it looks like the data isn't going from the Pineapple-ip to the Kali machine..

This is the br-lan of my Pineapple.

br-lan    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr XX:XX:XX:XX:XX          inet addr:172.16.42.1  Bcast:172.16.42.255  Mask:255.255.255.0          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1          RX packets:13310 errors:0 dropped:23 overruns:0 frame:0          TX packets:11319 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0          RX bytes:1253669 (1.1 MiB)  TX bytes:7433547 (7.0 MiB)

Aha !! Seem to have found it !! In the wp5.sh script there were some lines commented out. One of those was this one..:

#instructions
#echo All set. Now on the Pineapple issue: route add default gw $pineapplehostip br-lan

So i ran the route add default gw 172.16.42.42 br-lan on the Pineapple and voila.. it worked !! But now the GUI of my Pineapple is getting realllly slow, but this could be affected by the load (2 computers running a script connecting and disconnecting them from Google every minute..)

I think the instructions at http://wiki.wifipineapple.com/index.php/Internet_Connection_Sharing were written for Kali being run as a virtual machine.

I have Kali installed fully on one laptop and when I tried to follow these instructions I made a few modifications:

At the command prompt enter ifconfigband note the inet addr value for wlan0 (for example 10.5.50.30).

Then enter ./wp5.sh

In the subsequent seven questions enter:

1. [blank]
2. [blank]
3. eth0
4. wlan0

5. [inet addr]

6. [Enter]

7. [Enter]

This worked for me straightaway, I hope this helps any else who might be struggling too.
