General Lan Turtle Discussion

Recommended Posts

... I started the update process and the PuTTY session dropped. I waited about 5 minutes and didn't see any activity from the amber light. I figured it may have been a fluke install and just let it go while I was going about my business. I came back an hour later and still no amber. I tried to SSH back in but no good. I pulled the device out of the USB and it sure enough it wouldn't boot back up or respond to SSH connections.

Pretty much the exact same thing happened to me. After the upgrade I didnt get the amber light. I gave it a while, not an hour but 20 minutes anyway. Now when I plug it into my laptop, I get a steady green light and the amber comes on for about a second and then goes off.

The device is recognised in dmesg.

I don't get an IP although I can see the DHCP requests.

I have assigned the IP 192.168.1.2 to the interface but I cannot ping or access the web interface.

I have tried the unbricking method(dozens of times now actually) and either I am doing something wrong or something is wrong with my device.

The instructions I followed are from the wiki, thus:

1. Download the latest factory image from https://downloads.lanturtle.com/turtle-2-factory.bin
2. Carefully open the LAN Turtle case by removing the two screws underneath the sticker on the bottom
3. While holding the button on the bottom of the LAN Turtle, plug the device into a computer
4. After 3 seconds let go of the button and wait an additional 30 seconds to receive an IP address from the LAN Turtle
5. If you do not receive an IP address in the 192.168.x range from the LAN Turtle within a minute, statically assign the LAN Turtle's interface to 192.168.1.2 (netmask 255.255.255.0)
6. Browse to the LAN Turtle firmware recovery web interface at http://192.168.1.1
7. Follow the on screen prompts to upload and flash the factory image downloaded in step 1
8. When the flash is complete the LAN Turtle will reboot and will be accessible again from 172.16.84.1 with the default username root and password sh3llz

I'm kind of stumped. Any one have any suggestions?

In the dmesg output I posted above they're were some USB errors, when plugged into a different port, the output of dmesg reads:

Just to clarify, it still isn't working.

By some sort of Karma my girlfriend woke up and I asked her for her laptop password.

I tried, easily 14 times on my beloved Lenovo x220 running fedora to complete the unbricking process and it didnt work. My girlfriends crappy consumer-grade laptop running Windows 8 completed the unbricking process first time around.

Good News: My Lan Turtle is back.

Bad News: The world no-longer makes sense.

Well, tbh, the world never made a lot of sense, but now it makes less. Barry, thank you!

I sympathize with this statement. As soon as I think I have the world figured out, I end up using your girlfriends Windows 8 laptop to recover a borked box. Errr, something. :tongue:

Also for what it's worth, clear the browser cache before attempting recovery.

Hello every one, first off thanks to all who have made this possible. I received my Turtle a few days ago, was in class and started updating it over SSH. didnt pay it no mind, went on with class, loaded everything up and then today went to configure it. Received SSH timed out messages, went back to the 101 vid to make sure I had it all configured right. Now my laptop has 2 USB ports very close togeather, so I was using a 3 inch USB extension. even tried with out the extension. Plugged it into my tower and still nothing (tower: windows10 ultimate, laptop: win8.1base). Found discussions on unbricking the turtle, At first I was hesitant, but I pressed forward. Unbricked it thru tower, attached it to Laptop to test it, no responce... Put back into tower and was able to SSH into it... placed back into laptop (with out extension) and noticed after up date getting 2 sets of flashes on yellow light then goes away. Able to SSH into it now. Dont know what happened originally if the school shut a port on their network cancelling the update or if I killed it mid update, but it works now, and im going to show it off! So moral of the post, slow down and breathe, take note of your enviroment, and take chances too!

Can the LAN Turtle ping the listening host? If you escape from the Turtle Shell and issue "ping 172.16.208.171" do you get replies?

Couple of turtles on order.

Cannot wait till they get here to have a play.

Just so I know where Im going after initial setup... If I deploy the turtle in the powered by plug but with ether net access fashion... I can then ssh onto it, can I sniff all traffic on the network? Maybe metasploit my laptop on the same network and pivot to that?

The prospects are fantastic and I'm going to have a lot of fun learning with this device.

Thanks everyone who made it possible.

Also.... when are you getting the new pinapple v back in stock?! I have the old one and can't wait to try out the new tech!!

Hey all!

Just want to say how AWESOME the Lan Turtle is!!

The possible great things you can do are endless!!!!!

Also just to add, it seems the openwrt mirrors are down for barrier_breaker.

I had to update my opkg.conf file with this mirror.

dest root /

dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
And all seemingly worked fine.
Great work !!! =D

Hello,

 

Sorry if this not the correct place to post this.  I recently received my Lan Turtle and followed Daren's video.  I can connect the device and everything seems fine until I try to update the Turtle.  It says update found and then I get the follow error.  I would really appreciate any help.  I am running Windows 10 with Putty. Error.jpg

I'm having issues getting the turtle to load on all but one of the machines I've tried.  Looks like it can't load the device driver.  Is there a work-around to this?  Can the device driver be manually installed?

Hey Guys

Iḿ using the Turtle a while now.

Its a real good Device, makes fun.

Is here anything going on ? ... here...

I got several Questions / Problems with the Turtle .

The first is that there is no option to get a persistent https meterpreter back from it ....

And all others DIE ... or not Starting up (Https meterpreter)

Are these common problems? i am using a domain as LISTERNER , but it works for all my payloads , also the stagerless payload from the modules... it connects, but on Interacting it crashes down and never comes back.

I have tried all the Meterpreter Modules ,  they are shitty :-) sorry for that , but fact.

am i able to ad my own script to bootup on turtle ? so i can put on my own payload to execute on boot ? on the turtle?

can u help or advice me :-) i just want the turtle to be my meterpreter in the middle :-)

all other meterpreters set to this domain are running fine ... so itś not the domain, connection thing .
