Subject:Kismet detection of clients of an AP
Date:02:41:34 04/09/2007


one question,
I am developing a wifi-related tool and I noticed Kismet when identifying clients of an AP records as client of an AP only the SRC addr of a packet (e.g.: of a 802.11 data packet), and NOT also the DST addr of a packet. Why is that?

to reduce noise of pkts directed to non-existent dst addr? why? does it matter?
because it hopes to see responses from dst but this time as the src of a packet? why? I think it is not uncommon to see only one side of the conversation.

or, Am I completely misunderstanding the meaning of the DST addr? :)
