This is a article on how to download compile and execute ./file2cable on the Backtrack5 R2 release. The reason I have written this article is because, apt-get installl irpas does not work on the new release. If you dont want to do things the manual way you may want to try ettercap or other automated programs for altering Mac addresses.

GETTING STARTED


You will need :
  • Internet connection
  • Back Track 5 or earlier releases
  • irpas_0.10.tar.gz

    COMPILE

    This is in source code format so we will need to compile the newly extracted data.

    or

    follow my syntax

    cd ~/irpas.10

    make

    EXECUTE

    Now the program will need to be launched when you want to use it.

    or

    follow my syntax

    ~/irpas.10/./file2cable

    CONFIGURE

    If done correctly you will be promoted with 

    ~/irpas.10/./file2cable [-v] -i <interface> -f <file>


    change <interface> to the interface you want to use for example Eth0.

    Change <file> to the file you want to use example arp-victim

    [-v] = show file sent.


    the full command Will look a little like this:

    ~/irpas.10/./file2cable -i eth0 -f arp-victim

    and you will get the result

    file2cable - by FX <fx@phenoelit.de>
        Thanx got to Lamont Granquist & fyodor for their hexdump()


    NOTES

    if you say move iraps.10 to /etc/irpas.10 then you will need to specify the full path to execute file to cable again, now it would be /etc/irpas.10/./file2cable



    I hope some of you found this helpful please take care

    Thanks

    Ben

Don't Know??

Hi! I don *not* wish to be critical, merely informative. Space is at a premium in any medium; print, web, etc. OK. So, it is (or should be) good form to inform the audience. That is, when saying :
"This is a article on how to download compile and execute ./file2cable on the Backtrack5 R2 release. The reason I have written this article is because, apt-get installl irpas does not work on the new release..." OK. Backtrack I know, that's what got my attention! But...exactly what is "./file2cable" ?? You don't say to (possibly) new/uninformed user. Also, what is "irpas" ?? Again, you don't say. Saying what these are builds your value, credibility, and reputation with your intended audience as well as anyone else who justs 'stops by' for a look. Before you know it, you could be the 'go-to-guy' for all things Backtrack or whatever you write/know most about. Same applies (good form) to acronyms also: When using one, *always* spell it out first, then it's OK to just say WAN (Wide Area Network), for the rest of the article. Thanks for listening. Take Care. Have A Healthy, Prosperous Day!
