In El Capitan, I was unable to get 5.6 running. It showed an "application damaged" icon, and trying to open it resulted in a message "You can’t use this version of the application “AirPort Utility 5.6” with this version of OS X." However, I did get this to work. I have an OS X Leopard Server install running in Parallels v11, and was able to get 5.6 running ...
