> Quick question:
> The current version of Kismet for Windows seems to be having trouble logging data to the disk drive on my local machine. I've configured the .conf to reflect the location as "logtemplate=%h-%n-%d-%i.%l" and checked the box "Enable disk logging" in the Windows GUI, but receive the following error when Kismet is run.
