> How does Kismet distinguish between whether a MAC address relates to a Client or an Access Point? I'm currently looking at putting together a client program and I'm wanting to add a filter function for either clients or access points.

APs are reported on the *BSSID sentence, clients are on the *CLIENT sentence.

This will slightly change at some point in the reasonably close future (months) as the new tracker core comes together.

Internally it's differentiated by the tracker using the tods/fromds bits in the 802.11 header.
