It creates a kismet drone TCP server on port 2502 and starts to gather packets. After that there are no other messages, including a message that would indicate a server connected to it.

No firewall, two drones and server are all on the same physical/logical net.

There is a section in kismet.conf that talks about drone + server. It has dronelisten and other drone directives. Do I comment out the Client/Server section in lieu of the Server + Drone section?

A quick trace shows the server issuing a TCP ACK to the drone, and the drone responding with a ACK-RST.

Not sure why and the drone is not issuing any messages. Iptables list shows there are no policies in place. I can telnet from the server to the drone on port 2502 and issues commands. Any command that might shed some light?
