Subject:Newcore Drone / Server Configuration - again
Date:10:47:22 20/08/2008

> Okay, I'm at it again. I've got the latest newcore build 2423 from svn compiled with pcap, etc. It is currently running in the stand alone client/server configuration just fine. I've got three systems, one ubuntu 8.04 desktop one ubuntu 8.04 server and one ubuntu 8.10 server. My wireless cards are one zyxel usb and two d-link atheros cards. Again all work just fine in the client/server configuration.

> I would like to run all these (and more) in the drone configuration, however no matter what I try, I can not get a drone to collection information. I have even created a tcpdump/pcap file and fed that into the drone. Again, it just sits there without any indication that it is processing packets.

The drone will have no output - it doesn't decode packets, only captures them.
