    How are you using apt on macOS? – JMY1000 Aug 27 '17 at 6:26
  • i don;t know saw the command on website to install wireless tools. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 6:36
  • i have installed all :- brew,git,macport,fink,command line tools(xcode)....... There are similar offerings to apt-get for OS X but all of them have to be installed before you can then use them to install packages. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 6:39
  • What are you trying to do with the wireless tools? – JMY1000 Aug 27 '17 at 6:52
  • trying to use aircrack. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 7:11

To install AirCrack (as the author has indicated is his intent), you can either use MacPorts, Brew, or build from the source.

Apt, Yum, Pacman, and other package managers do not exist on macOS; the closest you'll get is MacPorts or Brew.

  • i don't know how to use aircrack, i have already installed it through macport. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 7:21
  • Now I'm really confused. What's the issue then? – JMY1000 Aug 27 '17 at 7:22
  • issue is to start airmon-ng it says command not found and i don't know how to use aircrack. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 7:25
  • That's an entirely different issue from what your question asked. I'd recommend posting a different question and I'll work from there. – JMY1000 Aug 27 '17 at 7:27
  • already did, check it. – Dev Uday Aug 27 '17 at 7:35
