V4 firmware: Enabled modules never start on boot

Recommended Posts

Further to my post about Netcat reverse shell not starting, I've spent more time with the LanTurtle trying to get it working. I've noticed that whatever module I enable, it doesn't run at boot.  I've also noticed that with the Netcat module there have been times where I've started the module, only to find that when I return to the main netcat module screen, it's not running.  Unsure how I got it working.  It's very frustrating as I'm currently left with a LanTurtle that I have to SSH into whilst at the same device it's plugged into.  Not overly covert :)

Has anyone else had problems with enabled modules not starting?  Not necessarily with V4 firmware, any version will do

Thanks in advance

And I haven't had a issue.  Autostart runs on the modules I use.

 

The only fix I had to do was manualy set firewall rules to allow 22 on both interfaces

@Sebkinne has looked into this and messaged to say that he's identified the issue and a new firmware will be released.

I've finally found some time to come back to the LanTurtle and see if I can get modules to autostart on boot.  

I've performed a manual factory reset of the LT with latest firmware (4), and decided to have another crack at the Netcat-revshell module, and I'm still not having this module start from boot.  

1. I've tested a manual start of this module and my NC listener works - I can interact with the LT machine from my remote box

2. I've set the Bootup status to ENABLED, and rebooted

3. After login to the LT again, I can see that the netcat-revshell module still has Bootup Status: ENABLED, and current status: STOPPED

4. I can manually start this module and it works like a charm.

5. I've looked at another module - URLSnarf.  that's not saving my configuration selection (save log to /tmp/) so here's another module that's not fully working.

 

This is just frustrating; @Sebkinne and @Darren Kitchen are there any plans to look into this issue? I'm not the only user with these problems.  Has Hak5 stopped supporting LT?  If so, please confirm and I'll ditch the LT altogether and not spend more time on it anymore.

I really want to use the LT on engagements, and to generally have a play around with some of the other modules that use tools/tech I've not spent much time with.  If the LT is flawed, then it's just an expensive usb-ethernet adapter.

 

hope that we see these issues resolved soon
