  1. You dont need to deal with nm-connection-editor or setting static ipv4 addresses.

    The problem is with the wp6 script setting iptable routing.

    Here’s a link to the Pull Request with the iptables fix https://github.com/hak5darren/wp6/pull/4

    Go to the May 18 2018 commit approved by H4xl0r. Click on the … button and view the file. Copy it and paste it into a new wp6 script.

    It will work as it should, you plug it in run the script and bam!

    “nm-conection-editor” app has every settings fiel grayed out as if theyare not editable. Why tho? is it a dependencyim missing?
