Connecting the WiFi Pineapple to Cloud C²
Cloud C² makes it easy for pen testers and IT security teams to deploy and manage fleets of Hak5 gear from a simple cloud dashboard.
Cloud C² is a self-hosted web-based command and control suite for networked Hak5 gear that lets you pentest from anywhere.
Linux, Mac and Windows computers can host the Cloud C² server while Hak5 gear such as the WiFi Pineapple, LAN Turtle and Packet Squirrel can be provisioned as clients.

Uploading a Cloud C² configuration
Once connected to a server, the Cloud C² service takes over most configuration and operation of the WiFi Pineapple.
Typical operations such as starting, stopping, and viewing recon scans, configuring filters, etc, are managed centrally by the Cloud C² server, and the local WiFi Pineapple UI is paused. The Cloud C² alert on the WiFi Pineapple allows for basic network configuration.

Your WiFi Pineapple can be unsubscribed from Cloud C² by clicking the "Remove Configuration & Reboot" button.
If you are in Local UI Bypass mode, it can be unsubscribed by navigating to "Settings" and using "Remove Configuration File" in the Cloud C² card.
