Feel free to play around with any of the options on PirateBoxManager (Built by me using Matthias's scripts) Some of these include: Start PirateBox: Starts PirateBox [color=#FF0000]#When PirateBox is running you cannot join other networks / connect to the internet#[/color] Stop PirateBox: Stops PirateBox and allows you to connect to other networks Manage Files: Opens up a file browser of the Share folder in PirateBox for you to delete / add things Just Download the Scripts: Requires you to connect to the internet (not recommended for most users) Config: A sub menu for quickly changing settings. It also has an option to clear the share folder ##### Also, now when you run First Setup it copies shortcuts to start and stop piratebox to the desktop that means that you can stop and start PirateBox just as easy as 2 clicks! ##### Note: When you reboot into the USB drive you will have to run First Setup on PirateBoxManagers' options due to the fact that non of your changes will persist (This is the nature of LiveCD / USB) Although I am working on seeing if I can make a persistent version that saves all of your changes and even files (as long as the drive is large enough) ##### 12 Easy steps is now all it takes to get PirateBox for most laptop users now B)- A big shout out to Matthias Strubel who is the reason this got done :)-D And another shout out to the rest of the PirateBox community who has gotten this to where it is. Who's awesome? You are. Any Comments, Concerns, Criticisms, Suggestions, Fixes, etc. Please post them below.
