Cannot Download Modules


Recommended Posts

I am unable to download any modules though internet connectivity exists and I can view available modules.

Upon receiving my LANTurtle I immediately checked for and downloaded updates. This updated my firmware from v1 to v2. I could not download modules (didn't try before updating).

Since I could not download modules, I followed instructions on the wiki and reflashed. I am running version 2 as downloaded from downloads.lanturtle.com.

I successfully:

-Acquire IP Address

-SSH to Turtle

-Change Password

-Update Turtle from within turtle shell

-Connect and view list of available modules

-Successfully reflash with latest firmware (though issues persist)

I cannot:

-Download Modules

I navigate to modules > modulemanager > configure > directory > yes > [select any module (all are displayed)] == message "installed modules:" ...no modules are installed

-Start the ModuleManager Service (maybe doesn't matter?)

​Selecting modules > modulemanager > start == screen indicating press OK or CTRL+C to exit...service does not start

Changing bootup status to "enabled" does not start the manager, even after performing above and/or rebooting

accessing lower-level shell and entering #start modulemanager provides a message "commands will be executed using /bin/sh" and a job is created, though modulemanager still does not run

I feel like this may be a firmware issue but cannot prove it since others have their turtles working on v2. I have a friend who received a turtle in same general time and did not update to v2. He is able to download and run modules without any problems.

Could an official download be made available of the old v1 of the firmware as a potential temporary fix/troubleshooting step?

Please advise, and thank you in advance for your help,

I am now having the same problem.

As far as I can tell, "lanturtle.com/modules/"

is the issue as it gives a 404 file not found.

The LanTurtle simply cannot download the modules

because when it looks for them they do not exist ?

Hope this can be fixed as I can't find the modules

to fix this manually.

The video is very clear on the subject of modules and I need not have posted.

But I have written a small script to install Curl, download the modules and set permissions.

For those still having issues:-


opkg update
opkg install curl

cd /etc/turtle/modules
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/autossh -k -o autossh
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/clomac -k -o clomac
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/ddnsc -k -o ddnsc
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/dns-spoof -k -o dns-spoof
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/dnsmasq-spoof -k -o dnsmasq-spoof
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/follow-file -k -o follow-file
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/keymanager -k -o keymanager

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hak5/lanturtle-wiki/gh-pages/modules/urlsnarf -k -o urlsnarf

chmod +x autossh
chmod +x clomac
chmod +x ddnsc
chmod +x dns-spoof
chmod +x dnsmasq-spoof
chmod +x follow-file
chmod +x keymanager
chmod +x meterpreter
chmod +x meterpreter-sl
chmod +x netcat-revshell
chmod +x nmap-scan
chmod +x openvpn
chmod +x ptunnel
chmod +x script2email
chmod +x script2http
chmod +x sshfs 
chmod +x tortle
chmod +x upnp-portfwd
chmod +x uptime
chmod +x urlsnarf

You will need to get this script on the LanTurtle.

So you may comment out Curl if you have all ready installed it.
