Applications > Anon Surf > check MAC won’t launch.
I tried this before and after connecting to TOR. I made sure the TOR tunnel was connected and I was getting an IP.
When I tried typing the command in the CLI, I received:
/usr/bin/anonsurf: line 267: mac: command not found
It looks like the anonsurf or mymac may have a bug.
Can someone tell me are these c programs or shell scripts? If these are scripts, can someone tell me where to find them, so I can check the code?
All the love, Val
I’m using Parrot Security ver 4.1
Debian Standard install
multiboot with other systems? no
The MAC options is not supported anymore by anosurf.
The dev forget to rewrite the help menu.
Use macchanger instead
I’ve got a little script I’ve been using to change my macs, outside of anonsurf. It makes a pc look like a macintosh. Can you tell me what you think of it and how I might be able to improve it?
sudo -u root systemctl stop NetworkManager
sudo -u root ifconfig eth0 down
sudo -u root ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo -u root macchanger -m 1c:ab:a7:00:00:01 eth0
sudo -u root macchanger -e eth0
sudo -u root macchanger -m 1c:ab:a7:00:00:02 wlan0
sudo -u root macchanger -e wlan0
sudo -u root ifconfig eth0 up
sudo -u root ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo -u root systemctl start NetworkManager
It coulde be easier and more usable (especial when you work with external wifi dongle)
to get the interface name as an argument.
You dont need those sleep times, 0.5 - 1 sec far more than enough
For example the script name is
#the script will exit if not run as root
#check the user id
if [ $EUID -ne "0" ]
echo "Run as root!"
#$1 is the first argument
#check if any interface specified
if [ -z $1 ]
echo "No interface specified!"
#check the given interface
if [[ -z $(ifconfig | grep -e "$INTERFACE") ]]
echo "Not a valid interface!"
service network-manager stop
ifconfig $INTERFACE down
macchanger -m 1c:ab:a7:00:00:01 $INTERFACE
ifconfig $INTERFACE up
service network-manager start
sudo bash mac.sh wlan0
change the mac address of
It is a bit complex for first, but need because of the typos
