> hey im wondering if its possible to open a FIFO i have on my linux box that is mounted through netbios share on my windows comp.. (i dont know much about FIFO so this might be a obvious no?) but i attempted it anyways and im getting "the capture session could not initiated. unable to open interface" when involked with wireshark -i Z:\kismet_dump (from cmd.exe) Z:\ being the mapped linux folder through netbios.. anyways just wondering if this is at all possible? appericated.

No. Fifo is a posix local construct that uses a virtual file as an endpoint for app-to-app memcpy, theres no way it can work over a file share.
