GL-AR300M – GL.iNet: nice small device allowing NAT over WAN, WiFi, 3G/4G modem, or OpenVPN

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/28

Still glad I got a few of [WayBack] GL-AR300M – GL.iNet: it makes travel life so much easier when you cannot use tethering.

I got the model GL-AR300M with external antennas (the GL-AR300M only has internal ones with a much shorter range).

Powered over USB, it runs OpenWRT and can NAT a local network towards an external network on the WAN, WiFi or (via USB) 3G/4G modem.

Despite doing only 2.4Ghz, it was a life saver in many occasions (there is a 5Ghz model, but it has over heating issues).

It can even run as an OpenVPN client, but given the hardware it is limited to about 10 Mhz (and gets quite warm).

Over USB, you can access web-cams, hard-disk, and more.

The internal LAN is a life saver when for instance you hook it to a stack of Raspberry Pi devices.

I’m not the only one happy with it:

Below are some videos with config tips and reviews.

Forticlient “the user might login in another computer”, never found the cause

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/25

Could only find one reference using “the user might login in another computer” – Google Search, who also could not find out why this error happened:

When trying to log in on FortiClient, I get an error message that says, “the user might login in another computer” I assume that could mean that I’m logged in on another machine elsewhere? I could not find any information confirming that.

[WayBack] Error Message | Fortinet Technical Discussion Forums

So I reached out to Fortinet, the makers of Forticlient:

[WayBackJeroen Pluimers on Twitter: “@Fortinet what could cause this? Searching for the message “The user might login in another computer” did not get me any further: https://t.co/Bl4KoWJ7IB FortiClient 6.6.1.723 on MacOS High Sierra.…”

Tools for TCP tunnels over HTTP/HTTPS

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/16

With the advent of WebSockets, it looks like TCP tunnels over HTTP/HTTPS are gaining more ground and I need to put some research time in them.

Some old to new links:

CONNECT requests are not supported by many HTTP proxies, especially in larger organisations, so chisel and crowbar have a much bigger chance there.

And of course there is SoftEtherVPN/SoftEtherVPN: A Free Cross-platform Multi-protocol VPN Software. * For support, troubleshooting and feature requests we have http://www.vpnusers.com/. For critical vulnerability please email us. (mail address is on the header.).

However, that is a VPN solution which is much broader than just a single TCP tunnel. You can so similar things with OpenVPN, but over HTTP/HTTPS, also requires CONNECT:

SoftEtherVPN seems to be more versatile though. I blogged about that before, but back then didn’t have needs for it yet. VPN over HTTPS: Ultimate Powerful VPN Connectivity – SoftEther VPN Project.

How I made my own VPN server in 15 minutes | TechCrunch

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/13

People are (rightfully) freaking out about their privacy as the Senate voted to let internet providers share your private data with advertisers. While it’s important to protect your privacy,…

Interesting: easy setup allows for creating disposable VPN servers.
