Kali


Hello,

I am new to linux and apologize in advance for the lack of information that is to come, but I hope someone will be able to walk me through a troubleshoot and just tell me what information is needed to help me. I recently set up Kali Linux 2017.1-amd64.iso in a virtual machine. Although I have no problems pinging my own IP address I cannot ping any other IP addresses or domain names. I am definitely connected to the wifi because I can browse the internet perfectly fine on my host OS.
ifconfig eth0
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 10.0.2.15 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.0.2.255
inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fee4:ae8b prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link>
ether 46:eb:c7:ba:78:4b txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)

TX packets 863 bytes 78300 (76.4 KiB)

cat /etc/resolv.conf

ping google.com

route -n

(Don't know why this turned up empty)

Thanks,

This might help.

https://docs.kali.org/policy/kali-li...rvice-policies

Kali is not a distro for persons new to Linux. It is highly specialized and designed specifically for penetration testing. I would suggest starting with a different distro, perhaps Slackware (which is a darn good teacher--it taught me to understand Linux) or Debian, then testing Kali when you've got your Linux feet wet.

If you must persist with Kali, this tutorial would be a good place to start.

Oh, and welcome to LQ.

Sounds like you need to configure VBox for internet.

I agree Kali is cool but it is advanced and unless you know your way around in Linux it won't do you much good. If you've never used Linux before I'd suggest Mint. But hey it's Linux do what you want and most of all have fun

Kali has networking disabled by default.

Try another OS. One that doesn't "suggest" intermediate to advanced skills to use.
You're in over your head.

Thanks for the responses. I will definitely take a look at that tutorial for additional guidance.

Setting the Network in VBox to bridge would probably help.

The tutorial I linked to suggests setting up Kali and Metasploit in VMs in "Host Only" mode, so that they can see each other, but cannot access the Big Wide World.

If you have Kali accessing the Big Wide World and start using its tools against other persons, you may--and should--attract attention from persons whose attention you would rather not attract.

Welcome to Linux, BUT think of: someone who hasn't seen/driven a car, taking a *huge missile launcher* for a test-drive, and asking the nearest official: "How do I shoot?" !!!

Take some time to 'Search' the wealth of LQ advice on kali: under where you enter Keyword kali, pull-down 'Search Titles only' (to optimize search results; also, at bottom, 'Show Results as Threads', instead of Posts).

Bottom line: on most forums (including sites other than LQ), it's best not to be a kali 'n00b'
Sorry, that's just how the www is

Best wishes on learning 'lots' of Linux first

p.s. ping -c 3 10.0.2.2 ; this ?should? be your Vbox NAT gateway (Is 192.168.1.1 your host's gateway/router? Idk how kali got this instead of 10.0.2.2! Only IF you can figure this out, and write an essay on why eth0 per #1 can absolutely-only-ever 'arp' 10.0.2.*, will I allow you to continue using kali) ip is 'new' cmd
https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...Network-Access (old, prior version tho)

p.p.s. What's the LQpunishment for flat-out lying and *saying* only Debian (when it's really kali)?

Note WELL #8, and same warnings in tutorial magazine link! I had exact same problem, and the very second I fixed it, InterPol shot down my front door; my ISP was too late to save me, when they terminated my account for egregious ToS violation, one additional second later. J/K, but ...

Indeed.

All of the tools in Kali can be made available in Linux Mint, which is far easier to get started with. I'd recommend installing Linux Mint and learning the utilities you are interested in one at a time on it instead. When you've gotten comfortable with them there, and are also comfortable with a little system adminsitration yourself, then you can make the leap to Kali if the perceived need is still there.

The punishment is having nothing work as the guidance given by members doesn't work due to Kali being configured differently and having different software versions.
