Subject:Help needed Kismet AirPcap Windows XP
Date:13:18:04 03/07/2010

My logging works under Linux too, BackTrack, and I've used it for over a year before getting the AirPcap. I tried different variations of the logtemplate also and I made sure that I sent them to my home folder where Kismet is already dropping config files.


> > Can I ask if your logs are saving? I have tried to point Kismet to Cygwin directories and Windows directories without any luck. On a new install, Kismet from CACE is supposed to save to the logs sub-folder of the Kismet install. Logs have never saved for me on 3 different machines, 2 XP and 1 Win7.

I tried all of the "reasonable" things in kismet.conf like logprefix and logtemplate; I also checked the box in the configuration application. the logs folder is empty, as is my own folder pointed to by kismet.conf. Clearly we're missing something.

Whether that was done in ignorance or for some specific reason I don't remember, but it is working. FWIW I could not make the suiduser work in Linux, so I'm running as root.
