I didn't configure it to do such a thing. It does it by itself. Where is the line that I have to modify?
And is this the reason for the error message : FATAL: Could not connect to localhost:2501. ? Because this is the fatal error that I thought that doesn't allow me to advance further in discovering kismet. (it dies after this message).

P.S. And if I may ask.....what about the other 2 paragraphes (issues) in my original message? Was this the wrong place to raise them? (in this case, where should I put them, cause the do have a lot in common with kismet).
