> Hi,
> I have a few questions.
> 1)First when Kismet is deployed as standalone does it generate alerts for attacks that are being performed in the same wireless network for eg a wireless attacker performs an man-in-the-middle attack on a wireless user when both are connected to the same access point??? If, yes where can i find the proper deployment steps and configurations???

Alerts are logged in the .alert text file (if you enabled it). They are enabled in the kismet.conf file, and listed in the readme.

> 2) what should be done when the kismet log file is blank???

Sounds like you either read the file while Kismet was running (don't do this), or you have misconfigured kismet.

> 3) Also i have installed kismet from the ubuntu software centre does that have any issues with the proper functioning of kismet???

If you didn't install the Kismet releases from the download section of this website, you're probably 5 years out of date. Ubuntu still ships a version from 2008.
