Xiaopan Forums Wiki

Table of Contents

1 About Us

In this technological age it is important that your internet security is not compromised. Our Forums comprise of a large friendly and knowledgeable community of members that bring a large variety of easy to use wireless penetration testing tools and Linux distributions as well as provide helpful information and support to those who need it.

1.1 What is Xiaopan?

Xiaopan OS was created by Djyuzi from anywlan.com in late 2011 in the absence of another popular Tiny Core Linux (TCL) build called Beini. Djyuzi realised that Beini was currently outdated and no longer being developed and decided to fill the gap. Our aim is further develop Xiaopan and provide excellent support to users worldwide, particularly to those who use the English language.

Xiaopan OS is an easy to use software package for beginners and experts that includes a number of advanced hacking tools to penetrate wireless networks. Based on the Tiny Core Linux (TCL) operating system (OS), it has a slick graphical user interface (GUI) requiring no need for typing Linux commands. Xiaopan OS is Windows, Mac and Linux compatible and users can simply install and boot this ~70mb OS through a USB pen drive or in a virtual machine (VM) environment.

1.1.1 Alternatives

There are a number of operating systems that have been developed specifically for hacking which all are based on Linux. These include BackTrack and WiFiway. What sets Xiaopan OS apart from its competitors is that it Xiaopan OS is simple to use and just works, depending on a number of variables and providing you have all the right hardware of course.

1.1.2 Tools

Xiaopan OS includes a number of tools to hack WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), WiFI Protected Access (WPA) and Wireless Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encrypted networks:

  • Reaver: newly developed application with the ability to brute force crack WPS (WPA / WPA2) pins.
  • Inflator: this is the GUI version of command line reaver.
  • Aircrack-ng: the major backbone of many other Xiaopan tools including FeedingBottle (FB) and Minidwep with the ability to attack WPA networks through a dictionary attack and WEP networks through collecting and injecting packets.
  • FeedingBottle: so easy a baby could use it! FB is essentially the Aircrack-ng GUI and was created by Beini.
  • Minidwep: is similar to FB but has a better and similar GUI that is even easier to use than FB. The added advantage of Minidwep is that you can also run Reaver and Inflator and perform dictionary attacks from here as well.
  • Xfe: this is a simple file manager similar to say windows explorer.
Xiaopan also supports a wide range of wireless cards and is very plug and play.

1.1.3 Other Tools

From Xiaopan 0.4.3 onwards, there will be the following new tools to enhance user experience.

  • Pidgin: Multi messenger client
  • Firefox: Browse the internet
  • Flash support: Able to view Flash animations and videos on Youtube.
  • Appbrowser: Install any app from any Tiny Core repo
  • Virtual desktops: Great way to clean up the clutter and utilise more desktop space
  • Text Editor: Editor to view and create text documents
  • Music player: What more needs to be said, best have the music in a USB and mounted in Xiaopan.

1.1.4 Pronouncing Xiaopan

You can pronounce it any way you like. However, if you are creating videos or screencasts it is best to get the pronunciation right. The word derives from the Chinese language and is pronounced Xi?o pàng ??. Hear the phonetic version to get a better idea of how it is pronounced. In English translation, Xiaopan means chubby or little fatty.

5 General Netiquette

Here are some general guidelines derived from the RFC 1855: Netiquette Guidelines.

5.1 Search, Browse and Read Before You Post

see: Finding What You Need

5.2 Use Meaningful Titles For Threads

Titles should be informative and informative for current and future users. It is also gives off an impression on the type of person you are. If you write ‘xiaopn does nt work’ you will not be held with high respect in the community and people may deliberately ignore your thread. It also causes more work for moderators and they might simply delete your thread.

So Remember, a title:

  • Summarises a topic
  • Must be in title case and use the correct spelling
  • Informative and detailed without being too long
  • Helps others find information easier
So from going from ‘xiaopn does nt work’ to  “EAPOL Start Issues & Timeouts with RTL8187L on Xiaopan” is much better.

5.3 Provide context when replying to posts

If you are responding to someone else’s comment you can use the quote button to notify them that they have quoted you as well as provide context for others. But only quote important parts you are responding to. You do not need to quote someone’s entire post. You can also tag members (more info) in post in the same method as you do in Twitter and Facebook by typing @username. They will be notified and be able to respond to your post.

5.4 Challenge the Argument, Not People

Do not attack other people by saying they are idiots. Explain why to the rest of the readers explain why you disagree with them in a polite and professional manner. Also it helps if you backup your claim with supporting evidence within Xiaopan or other websites / sources. You are also welcome to use our Post Rating Icons to express your emotion or thanks in a post or thread.

 5.5 Do not SHOUT!

Please do not use capitalisation or large font sizes, for your titles and forum posts. Exclamation points are good for emphasising a particular point or word. Bud please refrain overusing exclamation points as it is considered shouting and it is also hard to read.

You can also use bold or italics to emphasise a particular point but do not use a combination of expressive ways. E.g: HELLO!!. Also keep text colour to a minimum and only use colours that have good readability properties.

 5.6 Do Not Be Lazy

Remember that staff are not paid and we provide support and information with the kindness of our hearts. We also dedicate much of our free time to the site. So prepare to do some legwork yourself. Read this Wiki, read the Xiaopan OS Wiki, search in google for more information. A request for how to install Xiaopan or other simple issues have been answered numerous times and your request will be ignored. Invest the same amount of time as you would expect us to give you in a detailed reply. When you cannot find what you are looking for or would like to make a tutorial or provide useful information for the benefit of the community by all means post and use the 5 General Netiquette guidelines.

 5.7 Spelling & Grammar

We understand that many of our members come from other countries where English is not their first language. But please attempt to try your best. If you spell Xiaopan wrong that will be considered as someone who is careless and not trying to make an effort. Remember, the better the spelling and grammar the easier it is to read and provide the same level of spelling and grammar as a response.

Google Translate is not a perfect resource but it can help a lot for those who need additional help.

5.8 Warning Points

2.2.4 Shoutbox Rules

We allow anyone to discuss anything they like in Shoutbox, including off topic and random discussions. But the Shoutbox is not a support tool. If you are having issues or asking for help you need to read: Xiaopan Not Working, Need Help? Readme if the issue is Xiaopan or Beini related, then file a Support Request Forum if needed. Remember, the more information you give us, the more we will be able to identify what is wrong. As a guide, please read the Bug Report Etiquette page.

4.1 Bug Reporting Etiquette

This was created by one of our VIP Members TCB13  to assist us in devising a useful bug report how to guide. This is useful for when you want to Support Request Form.

When submitting a bug report, the preferred template is as follows:

  • Brief description
  • Steps to reproduce
  • Expected results
  • Actual results

4.1.1 Description

Be brief. Do not insert your own theory as to why something doesn’t work. This throws the developer off. Example: I do X, expect Y, but instead I get Z, therefore “x doesn’t accept booleans”. In the developer’s mind, because the very specific problem is booleans, he looks there first, sees there’s nothing wrong, ignores the rest. If you keep doing this it turns into “boy who cries wolf” syndrome, and people stop listening…

4.1.2 Steps to reproduce look like this

  1. Launch Renoise
  2. Open the demo song “Vivace – Jong Belegen”
  3. Press spacebar
  4. Click the Pattern Matrix Button

The more precise the better, the less precise the shittier.

4.1.3 Expected results
You expect something to happen. Describe it here.

4.1.4 Actual results

Instead, something else happens, and this is wrong. Describe it here.

4.1.5 Final considerations
Don’t post a bug report as a reply to some thread. Instead, start a new thread. This ensures someone actually looks at your issue. Also don’t start a new thread on a bug already reported in another thread, this will just make the programmer ignore you for ever.

Screenshots make the bug report 1000 times better. A video capture makes the bug report 100000 times better… but if you’re reporting bugs in command line applications just copy and paste, this way the content can be indexed by search engines and usable for other users and programmers.

When you pay for a coffee, you’re not paying for a future cup of coffee, those are bonus, they are not the product at the time of purchase. The same applies to the software industry. Reasonable cost of fixing the average bug in software industry: A day of work (8 hours) * 50€ = 400€ ==> this is below minimum wage and provably living in a squat or worse…

Enthusiasm for fixing poorly explained bugs with flamewar undertones at the same time as developing awesome new community driven features for next to nothing:

4.1.6 Different Kinds of Bug Reports  Smug Report

A bug submitted by a user who thinks he knows a lot more about the system’s design than he really does. Filled with irrelevant technical details and one or more suggestions (always wrong) about what he thinks is causing the problem and how we should fix it. by [aaronaught] Drug Report

A report so utterly incomprehensible that whoever submitted it must have been smoking crack. The lesser version is a chug report, where the submitter is thought to have had one too many. by [aaronaught] Shrug Report 

A bug report with no error message or reproduce steps and only a vague description of the problem. Usually contains the phrase “doesn’t work.” by [aaronaught] Fermat’s Last Post

A post to a bug tracker/email list/forum in which the author claims to have found a simple fix or workaround for a bug, but never says what it is and never shows up again to explain it (even after others have been puzzling over the bug for years). by [alan moore] Floater

The case in a bug tracking system where a bug report remains “floating” at the top of the queue, but never gets assigned to a developer, maybe because there is a workaround in place.

2.3 Issues with Activating Your Account or Signing In

2.3.1 Activating Your Account

See here

2.3.2 Unable to Sign in

Passwords and usernames are case sensitive. Meaning that if you signed up with the following:

  • Username: Alananos
  • Password: sdoDjwf

It must be entered as such. alananos with password sdodjwf will not work.

Therefore, it is best to use a combination that you can remember so that you minimise unnecessary frustration.

2.3.3 Forgot Your Password

If you have forgotten your password, you can use this form to reset your password. You will need to enter your username or email address. Then you will receive an email with instructions on how to reset it.

2.3.4 Banned Email Addresses

The following is a list of email addresses that are classed as disposable and will not work when you signup to Xiaopan Forums.

They are also highly unreliable wasting your time receiving an email activation that may never come. This will mean you cannot download or see the links until you confirm your membership. Also do not signup with a made up email address like admin@mail.com because simply you will not be able to use the Forums.

Many people use these to protect their main email addresses and protect them from spam. Many use them because they are quick to make and spammers use them frequently for bulk forum signups. If you have a big board, you will soon see yourself swimming in spam.

As a respectable XenForo forum owner who rarely emails users and takes pride in member privacy there is no need for disposable email addresses.

If someone can’t provide us with their real email address they get their account banned. Because they cannot receive email notifications and in most cases are there to leach or have no interest in being a valuable member of the community.

XenForo owners can add banned emails in their ACP in:

This will protect us from spam and people leeching from our site.

Banned Email Addresses (* Denotes wildcards)

(Last Update: 19/8/2012)

More will be added in the future. However, just signing up with a valid email address doesn’t mean you will not get banned in the future, please read our Forum Rules. Anyone attempting to share their account with others or posting login details on sites such as Bug Me Not will have their account banned

If you are worried about privacy, use the TOR project or a proxy and never use your real name or add your location to the site.

3 Finding What You Need

It is highly likely that your issue or what you are looking for is already on the site or in our Xiaopan Wiki. We use a custom Google search that spans both Xiaopan and DishingTech sites. This is generally located in the right hand side of the Forum page. It can also be accessed here in full screen. To narrow your search results you might want to use Boolean operators to improve your search results. Google has a wonderful resource to show you how to do this.

4 Requesting Help

You can request help in the Support Forum and use the Support Form, all threads eventually get answered a member of Staff or someone from within our community. You can ask for advise or help on small issues in Shoutbox, but remember that it is not to be used if you have a complex issue requiring lengthy information and a reply. Donator III and above members and above are allowed to request one-on-one help through Conversations or live chat from staff as they have purchased or achieved the privilege to do so.

5 How You Can Help Us

There are a number of ways you can help us and help others, we will list a few here:

7 Contacting Us

If you need to contact us directly you can do so when we invite you to. Generally there will be a Contact Us link where appropriate at the end of a section which you can use. Personal Conversations with staff must not be a personal request for help. This is why we developed the Support Forum and Support Form.

8 Making a Donation or Purchasing a Paid Membership

We welcome donations no matter how great or small it all helps. Money that is raised goes into covering the cost of paying for hosting fees, buying new addons and getting 3rd party IT help.

11 Privacy Policy

Our privacy policy explains how personal information is collected, stored and used. If you have a general enquiry about our Privacy Policy or can suggest improvements, please feel free to Contact Us. To report a privacy issue, please use our Privacy Form.

11.1 Collection, Storage & Use

We respect users privacy. However, there is a minimum requirement for the collection of personal information in order for Xiaopan Forums to function. At most this consists of your registration email address, username and password. We will never distribute personal contact details to any 3rd Party, unless with prior consent or if someone is of risk of harm. At times we may need to release information of those who are spamming, hacking the Xiaopan.co website or cyberbullying members to alert appropriate parties.

It is the responsibility of members to choose what personal information they would like to share, particularly in signatures and user profiles. It is recommended that members use usernames or aliases in the forums to ensure that members are not readily identifiable or subjected to criticism from their posts and comments. We also encourage writers and posters to submit anonymously (under a false name) if they feel that it might be controversial or detrimental to future job prospects.

11.2 Security Measures

Our data is encrypted in a MySQL database and we run the latest software to protect personal information. We work closely with our Australian hosting provider Crazy Domains to implement security measures to protect members’ data and accounts. We also make daily backups. However, in the unlikely event that a security breach occurs, we will notify our host provider immediately and Xiaopan will be taken offline until the security breach is resolved.

All members will be notified through their email address. Notification will be posted on the Xiaopan website as well as through Xiaopan Forums on TwitterFacebook and Google+ accounts. As an additional security measure it is recommended that when you request your @xiaopan.co email address and Forum membership accounts that you use a unique password that you have never used to prevent access to your other online accounts.

11.3 Emails

When you signup to Xiaopan you will not get unsolicited emailsspyware or phishing attempts. If you get an email from us requesting personal information please report it immediately here (fixup). As part of the signup process you will be issued with a confirmation email. Users have the ability to control what emails they receive you can opt out or unsubscribe from our mailing list at anytime. Forum users can also control alerts and opt out of email notifications, have the ability to block members and report incidents to Xiaopan.

Xiaopan recommends that you never publish your email address on the site as web crawlers and email harvesters can extract your email address and use it for the purposes of spamming or other malicious purposes. If you would still like to add an email address in a signature you are more than welcome to. To send personal messages to people you can do that via Conversations.

11.4 Statistics & Tracking

As with many websites, statistics are measured through Google Analytics to determine site performance, popular pages, search terms, bounce rates and so forth. Analytics is a powerful tool that allows us to optimise traffic, accessibility and deliver content worldwide. Location of visitors is tracked through Analytics through visitors’ IP address and plotted on a map. The data only identifies where someone has visited from a city to suburb level.

We might also collect and analyse data such as IP addresses to find out where referral links come from, evidences of hacking, image leeching and click fraud. There is no attempt to link log information with individuals that actually browse the site, except in cases of hacking, spamming or other abuse. If you are concerned you can use a proxy or implement plugins designed to block the Analytics tracking code or opt out (beta). HTTP outbound links are not tracked by other parties because we use an anonymous external URL link provided by Anonym.to.

Finally Reaver Pro is available to download and you do not need to buy the entire $99.00 kit. It is quite rare to find Reaver Pro for sale (even on ebay) or a demo version.  But here it is for VIP subscribers. This will work on Windows or Mac via virtualisation. The ISO can also be made into a Live USB or CD. Because the ISO is 1GB you can delete unnecessary files to fit this onto a CD yourself.

13.3 Issues with Mediafire

  • Mediafire has a bug when you click a link it reports it as ‘file blocked for violation’. However, it is perfectly fine. To workaround this issue:
  • Don’t click the links, right click copy.
  • Copy the URL e.g: http://www.mediafire.com/?5x0oexn752md2ww and get rid of http://anonym.to/? part.
  • Paste / enter in your browser.
  • A quick way to do this is copy all the links into a word processor and use the find and replace function to remove http://anonym.to/?
  • To manage downloads because there might be split archives totalling gigabytes, jDownloader or something similar will save you time.
