jermzz Posted March 30, 2016 Share Posted March 30, 2016 (edited) I know, first response is "yes dummy," but I want to do something kind of specific. My home and most of my friend's are all turning into smart homes. We have an echo controlling our TV and wemo lights and plugs, using harmony and fire TV, etc. All using apps from our phones. I wanted to try and play a little trick on my friends and girlfriend by remotely controlling the home devices remotely when they're using them. I have my turtle currently connected to my home network running open VPN to my digital ocean vps. I can connect to my network remotely with other devices. I can ping devices on my network, Nmap, etc, but I can't use any of the apps designed to work with them directly. Ie: alexa, firetv. I'm assuming this is because the apps look for Internet via (in case of my galaxy s7) wlan0 instead of the tun0 interface my turtle creates with the VPN. When that didn't work because I was not on wifi, I tried to connect my phone to the VPN and then Hotspot it to another device so I'd be on wifi which also failed because of how the VPN works. Does anyone have any idea how I could get something like this to work? Or is it not possible? Devices I have to work with: turtle, nano, kali live USB and nethunter tablet. Tia for any input Jermzz Edited March 30, 2016 by jermzz Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
