Subject:Cannot connect to server

I downloaded the latest kismet version, compiled it and installed with "make suidinstall" without any problems. After this I added my user name to the kismet group.

However when I try to run kismet, it cannot connect to the server and I get "connection refused". When I look at the server console, it shows that the interface "wlan0" was matched to source type "ath5k_pci". And it stops there.

I am using an Atheros card, but it shows as "wlan0", not "wifi0". I can see the kismet_server and kismet_capture processes running and I even tried connecting to the server using a simple python scrip, but always got "connection refused".

Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong ?
