After using my trusted raspberry pi for a little over 2 years, I was in need of an upgrade. In the beginning my goal was just to make a home firewall/server using PFsense, but then I added an extra requirement, it had to use as little energy as possible. My top priority was getting a system that…
networking Kali on the Raspberry
Now that we have everything install and booting correctly, we need to test the networking Kali on the Raspberry. I showed last time on “Installing Kali Linux on Raspberry” how to connect to the Raspberry. We do this again so we can modify the system to our liking.
Username: root & Password: toor
Same welcome screen, this time we will check if the Raspberry is connected to any network. Typing ifconfig shows all the enabled network devices.
Here we can see that we have a IP address on the Ethernet (eth0) port, but there is no wireless (wlan0) port anywhere, so we must do some more to make this device available to the system.
Now we need to check if there is internet connectivity on the raspberry, there many ways of doing this, but the simplest is to check if we can ping anything outside the network.
And behold, it worked flawlessly, we sent 4 packages to Google, and got 4 packages back. this took 3.00500 seconds. This means that eth0 is working properly. Now we can start figuring out why the other adapter (wlan0) isn’t working.
