interesting.  the updates went well and the tunnel tested ok....

 

looks good but isn't usable.

 

in windows, firefox can connect to the target sites.,, elsvulnerable.com for example.

 

in linux the ice weasel says "connecting..." but never connects.

 

tried several times.

tap0 exists - and looks ok - but iceweasel can't connect to the lab environments.

 

also, (and not important to me) i can't find a plugin for ice weasel to view the labs / play flash.

 

thanks for any hints

did you update the /etc/hosts file in kali with the elsvulnerable.com ip?

!~~~~~(always remember to backup your hosts file before making any changes to it)~~~~~!

$cp /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.old

$echo "10.100.0.100 elsvulnerable.com" >> /etc/hosts 

(remember to use double bigger than sign {>>} using only 1 {>} will delete anything else in the hosts file)

 

 

you can download the debian (deb) package from adobe's website, (kali is based ondebian wheezy)

https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer

 

but for general if you are busy and on such a hurry, this should do the job for you:

$apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree 

or in some cases:

$update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

 

good luck!

yes, i used vi to edit/add the 10. ip to the hosts file - but i'll verify the addr.

flash installed ok and i can get to the course screens but the screen just goes totally white now instead of telling me i need the plug-in.

not important

You know Kali linux and Backtrack comes pre-installed with OpenVPN?

 

The aforementioned commands will enable the gui but all you need to do is get a terminal and type 'openvpn [opvn filename]'

It will then prompt you for your usename and password.
