As far as i know TMAC is a bash script and should not require anything special to install. You can download it via any OS and copy it to your linux PC. Change its permissions to be executable.

So why do you need to change it and why do you need to change it to a random number?

I really don't think anyone here should be helping you get access to a network you were restricted from...

Getting access to a network you were specifically blocked out is cracking. The LQ rules don't allow questions regarding cracking, so you won't get an answer here and this thread will be closed soon.

Um... Well, well done for solving the problem, I guess - could you mark the thread as SOLVED please? (there's a link at the top of the page)

Thanks,
