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.

Okay, I've tried running all three on the same host to remove any network anomaly. Still no luck. There must be an issue in my drone config. Here it is:

# Kismet drone config file

version=newcore.1

# Name of drone server (informational)
servername=WLScanner2

# User to setid to (should be your normal user)
suiduser=wlscanner

# Drone configuration
# Protocol, interface, and port to listen on
dronelisten=tcp://0.0.0.0:2502
# Hosts allowed to connect, comma separated. May include netmasks.
# allowedhosts=127.0.0.1,10.10.10.0/255.255.255.0
allowedhosts=127.0.0.1,10.48.88.0/255.255.254.0
droneallowedhosts=127.0.0.1,10.48.88.0/255.255.254.0
# Maximum number of drone clients
dronemaxclients=5
droneringlen=65535
