Hi there, my name is Steve.
There are very few commands built in to Linux. Most of the commands that you type are actually programs that are installed on your machine. When you type the command, Linux runs the program with the same name.
The route file is the executable for the route command. it enables you to set up static routes if you need to, which you probably don't. If you just type route and press Enter, you should see a listing that says something like Kernel IP routing table and shows a Destination, Gateway, Genmask, Flags, Metric,Ref, Use and Iface.
The other files you've listed are the same thing. For example, ping is a command that sends a signal to another device and waits for the signal to come back. it's a way to test if another computer is online or a device is active. You can ping in Windows as well.
ifconfig displays the details of your network configuration. you might have to run it as sudo ifconfig to see any output.
So these files are all normal files you should have as part of your Linux installation.
If I've answered your question, can you please accept the answer and rate me accordingly? I don't get paid anything for helping you unless you accept the answer and rate me at least 3 stars. If I haven't answered your question, please chat me back and I'll get you the information you need. Thanks and have a great day!
OK, what would you like to know?
The route just shows the IP address for the local network and the port that's being used.
Type sudo route and you should see output from the command.
If you tell me what it says or if you can do a screen print and post it here, I can tell you if anything looks unusual.
I would have to see the output to be able to tell you that. What I can tell you is it's a requirement that you have the files you listed in the directory you listed.
When you get back to your computer, type:
and post it here and I can tell you if it looks OK or not.
No, iface won't give you access to a camera. It's to set up either a wired (Ethernet) connection or a Wi-Fi connection for the computer.
Do you have a router/gateway that you use to connect to the Internet? For example, do you have a router connected to a cable modem or DSL modem?
I'll wait for you to chat me back after you get to your computer.
OK, I'll wait for you to post the output and tell you if anything looks unusual. But if someone were going to do something to your network to monitor it, it's more likely they would have to change settings in your Time Warner router than on your computer, since the router is the gateway to the Internet.
The computer is not connected to a network, right?
That helps. I didn't realize this was a Mac, so this is BSD and not Linux.
The output shows that you have the following interfaces on the computer:
lo0 - loopback 127.0.0.1
gif0 - Generic tunnel for IPV4 to IPV6
stf0 - IPV6 tunnel interface
en0 - Ethernet 0
en1 - Ethernet 1
fw0 - Firewire
p2p0 - Local link interface (probably AirDrop)
It all looks normal to me.
What exactly do you think this person has done? What do you mean when you say your network was compromised?
Alter them to where? All traffic coming in and out has to go through your Time Warner gateway.
What did the other people say was unusual about the configuration? If you're comparing it to Windows or even to Linux, it would appear that there are a lot of extra network connections that are present that might be unidentified. But this is BSD, and these are all normal network connections that you should have. Most of the extra connections are to facilitate IPV4 to IPV6 and back.
Are you talking about Apple's concept device, the "holographic phone for 2020," aka the Apple Black Hole?
Your computer is connected to your local area network. On the local area network, traffic only flows between devices on the LAN. There is a private set of IP addresses that are used on the LAN that are meaningless and unidentifiable outside the LAN. Your Time Warner gateway holds your public IP address that's accessible by anyone on the Internet. That's why it has a firewall. All traffic in and out of your LAN passes through the gateway. The gateway removes the local IP address, puts the public IP address on and assigns a port. When data comes back, it takes the public IP address off, looks at the port so it knows where to send it back to, and puts a local address back on.
It's conceivable that someone could create a tunnel from that computer to another server and to route traffic through that tunnel. But the configuration doesn't show that.
But all you have to do when you connect the computer to the network is do a traceroute and you can see the route your traffic is traveling on.
Black Hole was a term that was inside the route executable file when you typed out the contents. It's not relevant.
If you think the traffic is being rerouted, do a traceroute on it and you will know for sure. You can see if a tunnel or proxy server is somehow in place.
You can also configure IPtables to block all traffic and then look at the logs to see what's trying to get out.
Hey there, sorry, yes I'm sticking with the "irrelevant" theory of the black hole...
