KALI – How to install ARMITAGE – The Visual Guide
When you first install Kali, Armitage is not installed. So here’s how to install it.
Step 1 – Download Armitage
apt-get install armitage
Step 2 – Start the Database
service postgresql start
Step 3 – Start Metasploit
service metasploit start
Armitage does not use the Metasploit service, but starting it once will setup a database.yml file for your system.
This is a necessary step. You only need to do this once. A Connect dialogue box will appear.
If this is the first time – the Ruby scripts will load… slowly.
Step 4 – Armitage Gui
The GUI fills the entire screen.
Step 5 – NMAP Scan of Network
HOSTS > NMAP Scan > Intense
Enter network range eg 192.168.1.0/24 – for your home network
Leave it for 5 minutes and NMAP will report all hosts on your home network.
Step 6 – Armitage will display hosts found
Armitage is installed.
