> I'm using Kismet 2010-01-R1 to capture wireless traffic in order to demo H.323 vulnerabilities, and I would like to use the Kismet FIFO config option to pipe the output of Kismet and open the pipe with Wireshark for live display of captured H.225 packets.

This got phased out in favor of the tuntap option - turn that on, and you'll get a virtual NIC w/ the packets, which you can connect/disconnect/attach multiple programs to at once/etc.

All the good and none of the bad of the fifo pipe.
