Subject:ENABLE PACKET - how to start capturing?
Date:22:00:20 09/11/2011


I have started playing a bit with kismet server to capture some network characteristics and evaluated possibility to write some custom client for it.

How can I enable capturing packets from configured source? "PACKET" is listed as protocol on my server and I can query for capabilties but when I "!1234 ENABLE PACKET *" I only get ack "ok" and no packets on telent session.

As far now everything works great, I can capture all information with kismet_client, dumpfiles contains all capture packets with full information about them.

Could you suggest me how can I retrieve capture packets?

When I telnet to server I get:
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
