Repeater Troubleshooting

The purpose of this section is to help you solve common problems that you may encounter while using a Repeater.

Connectivity Test

In order to use a Repeater from within a local network, you must first make sure it has a proper access to all the target applications.
You can use the nexploit-cli configure --nogui command to run a simple connectivity testing process.


Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Run the command nexploit-cli configure --nogui in your terminal.
    The Nexploit Network Testing wizard is launched.

  2. Enter the API Token and Repeater ID in the relative fields.

  1. The CLI runs the first stage of the external communication diagnostics:

    • Validating that the connection to at port 5672 is open is required for the Repeater to reach the scan engine.
    • Validating that the connection to at port is open is required to reach the Nexploit API endpoints.
    • Verifying provided Token and Repeater ID is required to validate the credentials.

    The diagnostics results are provided next to the validation parameters.

        After the external communication diagnostics has passed, the CLI switches to the validation of the Repeater         communication with local target application(s).

  1. Enter the target URL(s) to test if the Repeater can reach them.

        The internal communication diagnostics starts, and the Repeater tries to reach the specified applications.

  1. Once the diagnostics is completed, you can see how many targets cannot be reached by the Repeater.
    To exit the wizard, close the terminal.
