I have refrained from posting on this for a while, however after a lot of trial and failure.. I would appreciate some feedback.

I have been trying to simply get a fake ap (transparant) working and am trying with airbase-ng.
Following the post by hm2075.

Using back|track4 Pre Final (latest 2.6.30.7)

Basically there are a couple of issues I have at the mo ;

1.
dhcp3 is failing.

Whatever I try the dhcp3 is refusing to (re)start.
Making it impossible for me to get the IPs issued.

2.
This may be OS dependant, however the fake aps are not being shown (showing up as "hidden" or "unknown" in winXP)


The code I am using is as follows ;
airbase (with mon0 being wlan0 started --> monitor mode)
Code:
airbase-ng -e "TEST_AP" -c 9 mon0
Modifying the dhcp.conf file as needed;
dhcp.conf file in /etc/
Code:
ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
subnet 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
option routers 10.0.0.1;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option domain-name "example.com";
range 10.0.0.10 10.0.0.20;
}
After having started airbase-ng as above, running iptables as below ;

Code:
ifconfig lo up
ifconfig at0 up
ifconfig at0 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig at0 mtu 1400
route add -net 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.0.0.1
iptables --flush
iptables --table nat --flush
iptables --delete-chain
iptables --table nat --delete-chain
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp -j DNAT --to 192.168.1.1
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface wlan0 -j MASQUERADE
then
Code:
/etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart
I always get the ;
Code:
Stopping DHCP server: dhcpd3 failed!
Starting DHCP server: dhcpd3* check syslog for diagnostics.
 failed!

Possibly I am missing something trivial, however after a lot of reading I simply cant work it out.

As for #2; the 'mis-reading' of the ESSIDs when using airbase-ng, well interesting to find out why, but #1 my main annoyance..



Any assistance greatly appreciated.
