backtrack net config
I have downloaded backtrack bt2.0 final sometimes ago and it is hard enough
for me to accessing the web...How to proceed?
I am using a modem huawei and before connecting to the web with knoppix
i use "wvdial huawei" after some configuration.
I would like to know the to access the web with backtrack using a dialup modem ... Thanks...
You're using knoppix? I didn't even know that existed in BackTrack?
I would like to know, is it a dialup-modem you're using? Or is it cable-modem?
Or is it the most used, adsl-modem? Or is it neither of these?
With non-dialup modems BackTrack should make you able to automatic connect
to the internet, if you're using an usb-cable then pull that out and use a real cable!
After that if you still can't access the internet, make sure you have your external
interface up by writing ifconfig. In most cases when speaking non-wifi it would be eth0.
(i think as i haven't seen anything else so far).
For example if your internet device is eth0 and to bring it up i would write:
(very simple, and very good)
If it's up write
(i am of course just assuming you get an ip normally by dhcp.)
If you are on a lan network, then you might have to specify the ip
yourself. I haven't come out for this yet, but to do this i would either
use the GUI form which is located in your 'home' directory or you could
try do it in console. (i've forgotten that command as i'm used to use dchp though)
But one thing i DO happen to know is there's probably more info here
on these forums if you use the search button, or you could try the BackTrack Wiki.
If not then you could try go to offensive-security.com and try look at some of their
vids. I do happen to know that there is a vid about general commands in BackTrack2 ;)
That's my 2 cents.
i am using for connecting on the net knoppix...
but i dind't use backtrack to do it yet...
i am using a dial up modem : huawei ets2058
in case i would like to use backtrack 2.0final for net setting , how would i do?
by the way i'd like to know what i should do for allowing a remote machine used
by my assistant to connect to my pc...
i don't understand why he could't connect to me despite the fact that i am on my
You can set up SSH from the KDE menu, or you can run Apache or Samba. make sure the connection port is forwarded to you machine through your Firewall or Router.
