Console Access Basics

The WiFi Pineapple platform is built on the OpenWRT distribution of the popular GNU/Linux (“Linux”) operating system. Accessing the Linux console may provide the penetration tester with a familiar environment as both busybox (/bin/sh) and bash (/bin/bash) are included. Furthermore, packages may be installed from the opkg package management system.

Note: (NANO) after running opkg update, install packages to the Micro SD card using the –dest parameter. Example: opkg –dest sd install nmap

Two WiFi Pineapple specific commands are provided to interface with PineAP and installed modules which support CLI functions: pineapple and module
