Thanks for the help. But do you know how to tell snort to read from the named pipe file. I tried pointing to the file when I start snort, but I am not sure if it is reading from the file.
One more questions if you know how to do this. I am also running kismet_drone and sending that information to Kismet_server. I am able to get the drone to run properly, but the only way I can get Kismet_server to start is with the -n option which means to turn off the logging. Do you know how to startv kismet_server properly.

Thanks for your help
