Subject:Kismet_server connected, but not receiving data

Hi

I have a drone (kismet_drone on openwrt) and server (kismet_server on ubuntu) running, and the server is connecting to the drone just fine according to kismet_server output, and the .netxml file shows my drone. If I netcat to the port 3501 on the drone, I see lots of data originating from the drone, as we would expect.

However, the kismet_server although connected is not producing any data.

I'm not sure whats going on, or what to check next?

The netxml file shows my drone as connected, but no packets:

<card-source uuid="26a931b2-abab-11df-a947-30040c171802">
<card-source>drone:host=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,port=3501</card-source>
<card-name>drone</card-name>
<card-interface>drone</card-interface>
<card-type>drone</card-type>
<card-packets>0</card-packets>
<card-hop>false</card-hop>
</card-source>

Any ideas on what to check next please?

UPDATE: Not sure if its relevant, but we are also seeing the following message in the drone console:

Kismet drone server client fd 5 ring buffer full, throwing away packet


Thanks
Mike
