WIFI HACKING – KISMET – How to Install Kismet on Windows
Lets see if Kismet can run on a Windows 10 laptop. Here are the hurdles to jump through.. and downloading the first stages is slow – you will lose the will to live, but lets see if this works.
Step 1 – Download Cygwin
Get Cygwin here Cygwin.com
Accept most of the default settings for installation. These include install from Internet, install for all users and a download site.
Okay, here comes the packages – and the installs will take an age. Put your feet up, watch TV all night and let the downloading begin…
You will need
Step 2 – Development – 3 packages
Step 3 – Libs – 2 packages
Step 4 – Utils – 3 packages
Once the packages are downloaded, let the installer run. As I said, you will lose the will to live – so make sure you have some serious catchup TV to hand.
Step 5 – Make some directories
Open Cygwin and make some directories.
mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd
mkgroup -l > /etc/group
Create windows users and groups
To make the root account an Administrators account.
net localgroup “Administrators” “root” /add
type this in again – and if it’s worked you’ll get an error as shown above.
then create a wheel group
net localgroup wheel /add
Step 6 – DOWNLOAD KISMET
Download the last Kismet version – to the /home directory
To cheat here type in tar -xvf kismet – and next hit the TAB KEY… it will auto fill in the path for you. Lazy but awesome.
Uncompress the file – using the TAB key!
tar -xvf kismet (now hit TAB)
#tar -xvf kismet-2016-01-R1.tar.gz
Change to the Kismet directory
Then Configure – notice that you need to disable pcap or this will fail.
Run the following command to generate the dependencies:
