    How to install tools and updates remotely on Nethunter using a Secure shell

    I created this thread because people like me may get bored when it needs to install tools that are not available on kali from github , and using the tablet keyboard could be anoying to do that if you have to input a lot of commands to install scripts or tools .
    This manual will show you how to start a secure shell on nethunter , and will show you also how to connect to nethunter remotely from any linux distribution in a computer on your network .

    1st step : Connect to your wireless network and open nethunter in your tablet and you will see this menu popup .



    Take a note of what is your IP address given by your wireless router (my case is 1.1.2.108)


    2nd step : on kali menu go to the left up corner and open Kali Service control


    Start the SSH (Secure shell) service on Nethunter


    Step 3 : Your secure shell just started , now go to your other linux desktop computer connected on the same network and open a terminal .




    You just need to write in your terminal that is opened in your linux desktop " ssh ip" (my case ssh 1.1.2.108)
    The SSH session will ask you for a password , unless you change it , the default password in nethunter is "toor" .

    from that remote terminal you can install whatever you want in nethunter by using your desktop keyboard , like the example i used to get a toll from github in next picture .

    the default password for ssh in nethunter is "toor" .
    Before starting nethunter you have to enable your wifi on your tablet .
    After the wifi network on the tablet is established with your router then you start nethunter and then start ssh service .
    Did you enter any password when ssh service asked you ?

    since i use my nethunter ssh only in my internal network , i never gave myself the time to change mine .
    but i believe that it works the same way as it is in any linux distribution .
    read this topic :
    http://superuser.com/questions/57127...assword-in-ssh


    if you get some difficulties doing it then let me know and i will try here over the weekend .

    how can I use my android app with Kali Linux remote SSH
    Depends on the perspective , the way this tutorial is explained you can use your linux tools in nethunter remotely .
    witch means that if you want to do a nmap scanning from your nethunter remotely then you just need to write the command and nethunter will do it for you . however you can also do it from your linux station .
    I write this tutorial for people install their tools from github using a remote shell in their network , this way it will be more simple to solve possible problems in the compilation of some utilities .

    how to set ssh to not keep the logs?
    good question .
    I think that logs are stored in /var/log/ directory , but ssh logs are not stored independently from system logs , usually the system logs or authentication logs are stored in auth.log file in that directory .
    while system is running the file is blocked for delete (i dont know if that file is delete then you may encounter issues ) .
    look up the net .

    Hello,

    I installed Nethunter yesterday on my nexus 6 and it went perfectly well.
    Trying to open an SSH session on my device, I start the ssh service and issue the usual command.
    My problem is that the password 'toor' doesn't work. Did they change it for nethunter 2.0?
    If I enter 'su' in a terminal session on the nexus, it doesn't ask for a password and after some research, I couldn't find any way to change or set a root password on the Nexus.
    Does anyone know if there is a ssh-config file somewhere, I didn't find any. I could store my public key and forget this password thing... ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks all
