1 Webserver running on ANYKA netbook on Sat 6 Mar 2010 - 17:56


Hi all,
great to have a forum for "our" type of netbook. Very Happy

My netbook is the AK7802 type, with CE 5.0.
Within the /windows folder lives a directory called www, which prompted me to perform a portscan of the little beast. And voila, a webserver is running on port 80 and 443, with the default document directory


HTML documents present in this dir are hosted over the the webserver is actually working.

Finding this as well amusing and a bit alarming, I have performed an audit of the netbook when it comes online. No captured packets indicate that it "phones home" in any way. On the other hand, the hidden webserver is probably slowing down the device, hence I would like to shut it off anyway.

I would like to know if this "feature" is also present on your machines as well ? Anyone knows what its originally meant for, and how to kill it ?

Second thing, I want to use my netbook for pentesting mainly, and the Win CE 5.0 on my netbook came without a telnet or ssh client. (BTW, I was surprised to see it DID come with the "net" command, so you can map windows and Samba shares from the console)
Anyway, I spent a day or two searching for relevant software, like port scanners etc.

Here is a short list of Applications which run on my netbook, and possibly on yours too:

PocketPutty (telnet and ssh client)
HaRET (tool for loading linux)
NbtstatCE_0.05 (tool for discovering and mapping windows shares)
netcat (the "swiss army knife" for networking)

I obviously used the ARM versions of the respective apps, most of them originally meant for PocketPC 2002 or 2003.
I installed the apps (some work without installation) on my storage card and can start from there...adding icons to the desktop is also impossible in my version of Windows "Crippled Edition", but the apps survive a reboot.

If anyone has a real port scanner or WLAN sniffer which runs on "our" netbooks, plz post...I would be most interested.

best regards,

I get the same error message, but when I put HTML documents in the remoteadmin folder, these documents can be retrieved over the net, hence the webserver is really functional.

Funny feature !

I saw the webserver but it does not appear anywhere to uninstall o disable. I tried in the register in the "init" folder but it is not there. Do yo know how to disable it?
