The most common way to access the WiFi Pineapple console is via Secure Shell (SSH). SSH clients are preinstalled on most Linux and Mac systems. Windows users are advised to download a SSH utility such as the popular PuTTY client. Android users may also find compatible SSH clients from Google Play.
To connect to the WiFi Pineapple console over SSH, first connect to the WiFi Pineapple network from your host device. Once connected, ssh to the WiFi Pineapple IP address (default: 172.16.42.1) with the username root and password configured on setup. This is the same password as used to access the web interface. The SSH service on the WiFi Pineapple operates at the default port 22.
