Dragorn, thanks for your help. I've been trying this all day using Python. I've previously been able to grab the data using 'enable' but I now want to find out exactly what data is available to be grabbed by the client. I've tried using 'capability' followed by the name of the protocol I want to find out more about but to no avail.

I don't know your knowledge of Python but here's what I have thusfar. Just wondering if you can advise where I may be going wrong:-

# Kismet server settings
host = 'localhost'
port = 2501
# Create a TCP socket
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect((host, port))

#Start loop to grab client information from Kismet server
s.send('\n!0 capability client')
buff = s.recv(1024)
print buff

Whenver I run the above, I just get the list of main protocols returned.
