I am trying to set up the Duet Wifi on my MacBook pro but I can't get past the first step. The USB is not recognized on my computer for some reason. I receive the following code when trying to connect:
-bash: /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port: Permission denied
I have also tried running as admin, as seen in the forums:
sudo: /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port: command not found
Any help would be really appreciated.

So what happens if you then enter the super user password?
Out of interest can i set up the wifi if i plug the duet lcd screen in ?
Yes, if your PanelDue is running recent firmware that includes the Shift key on the touch keyboard, then you can send the M587 wifi setup command command from it.

MacBook-Pro:~ kwhitehouse$ ls /dev/tty.usbmodem1411
Ok I have discovered the issue was me not entering the commands properly. Now my problem is that I hit the erase button while troubleshooting as per a forum thread and I think I probably need to reinstall something onto the board before it will connect. I found this thread, but it seems to be specific to windows:
I have considered boot camping Windows on my mac or trying to use my raspberry pi with raspian on it to configure the board, but this seems unnecessary. If you could point me in the right direction for reloading the firmware to the board and getting to the point where I can start over at the setup procedures again, I would appreciate it.
@kwhitehouse68 if you erased the firmware you will need to use fallback procedure #3 on the documentation page you linked.
I don't have a Mac however there are instructions at the bottom of the section about how to use bossac to upload an image to the board.
