> Thanks again Dragorn. By the term "client", do you mean develop a new client in Ruby that will speak to the Kismet server, thereby negating the use of the current client? My knowledge of programming is limited (to say the least) :-(

Kismet supports any number (well, I think somewhere it's limited to like 10) of connections. Right now when you type 'kismet', you're launching the kismet client, which in turn brings up the server.

Other code can connect to it, get all the info the client displays now, and do whatever it wants with it. Ruby is one way to do this fairly simply, and there's some example code in the ruby/ directory.

So pretty much you'd run kismet as normal, and then run your sql logger, too.
