Raspberry Pi services to configure tethering.


To be used with ethernet gadget mode to allow to image Sticky Fingers Kali-Pi and enable ethernet gadget mode by editing the following two files in the /boot partition:
cmdline.txt: Add “modules-load=dwc2,g_ether” after “rootwait”
config.txt: Add “dtoverlay=dwc2“

To configure USB and wifi tethering:

Place your "interfaces" and "wpa_supplicant.conf" in /boot. They will be copied to /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf respectively. The running configs are copied back to /boot/ and /boot/

This is particularly useful when using ethernet gadget mode for the initial headless setup of a raspberry pi.
I advise to disable the avahi-daemon service after the initial setup (systemctl disable avahi-daemon).

To configure Bluetooth tethering:

Place a "pi-tailbt.conf" file in /boot with mac addresses of authorised devices. Pair to the Pi-Tail the pi within 3 minutes of booting up.
NOTE: Bluetooth pan will not be started if this file doesn't exist, so if you don't want to pair via bluetooth: delete this file.
