So… there are several reasons I use hostapd on some of my raspberry pi….. and when I do I have seen an issue. To save myself from having to look this up again I just want to note it here. Error: Failed to start hostapd.service: Unit hostapd.service is masked And……to fix it:
Everyone needs a little computer to…well….leave places… Here comes the raspberry Pi Zero W I use Linux as my desktop so…you will have to translate if you are unfortunate and have to use something else… First download a lite Raspberry image: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ Unzip it and copy it to an SD card:# dd if=2019-07-10-raspbian-buster-lite.img of=/dev/sdb bs=512k Now, remove your SD card and plug it back in so you can mount the boot partition by default there is no ssh enabled…so this fixes that:# cd /media/you/boot# touch ssh Now you need to setup the network….also in the boot partition# vim wpa_supplicant.conf Ok, unmount it…. Plug it into your raspberry Pi and power it on! Now, if you control your DHCP server it will show up as a hostname of raspberry and you can ssh into it, user of pi password of raspberry
Ok…so, if you know me the fact I have a PM3 (Proxmark3) is not a surprise. I have had it for years, actually have a v1 and a v3…. Anyway, I love running Kali on bare hardware, have been doing it for years, love it. Anyway, here are a few personal notes for running Proxmark client on Kali 2019. Some notes from here: https://scund00r.com/all/rfid/2018/06/05/proxmark-cheatsheet.html With a few of my own edits Also, I have seen some issues where ModemManager causes the Proxmark to reboot…. so I disable it:systemctl disable ModemManagerandsystemctl stop ModemManager Ok… now that it is compiled here are some notes on flashing the firmware and starting the client:cd proxmark3/client./flasher /dev/ttyACM0 -b ../bootrom/obj/bootrom.elf./flasher /dev/ttyACM0 ../armsrc/obj/fullimage.elf ./proxmark3 /dev/ttyACM0 BOOM, done!
