Reverse Connection Fails: Metasploit

Reverse Connection Fails: Metasploit

The metasploit framework doesnot connect to the remote payload it is just stuck on starting payload handler. It was working fine few days ago with the same payload bound with an apk. Now its not connecting when I start the app. All commands are correct. It usually fails to connect to the database. Can anyone help whats the problem and how to fix it..

Local network or WAN? If local, has your local IP address for Kali changed? If WAN has your WAN IP changed?

I am using on WAN. I have payload packed with no-ip ddns and had it updated so no ip issue. Any help..

Ok. Now go into terminal and type ifconfig Your local IP address will be listed. Go into your router configuration page and make sure that same IP address is port forwarded. If you have a different local IP address than before, you can set your router to assign Kali a static IP address.

The ip address is same as before, and the forwarded port (4444 in my case) is correctly assigned to the listener. But still not working..

Check to make sure the listener is working. Go to the Android phone, type your DNS address and port in the web browser. Ex

If your listener is setup correctly it should show an http get command in Metasploit.

Yeah it worked fine when I updated the framework yesterday, and started the postgresql service as /etc/init.d/postgresql start. Thanks bro for your help.
