well, after 25 yrs of being in the it business it happened to me too. i posted and then found out that there is only one kis vap being created.

i checked out the svn around october 16.

is there any way of forcing kismet to create two vaps? did you change this after oct 16?

I am going to pull a new svn version and test this evening.

sorry for using your precious time, and many thanks.
