Subject:setting up a TCP packet source
Date:15:12:19 28/01/2013

I am attempting to integrate packet data collected by a stand alone collection system into kismet to allow for correlation with wifi data collected by kismet. I am desiring send the packet data as a json data stream over a tcp link. I have been looking at writing a server plugin and a client plugin to handle the data. It appears that for a source to be recognized, enabled, and polled; it must be associated with an interface and a tcp port is not an interface.

I have examined writing a 'drone' like interface to inject the data into the kismet server, but it seems like a lot of work for a simple task. Is there a simpler way capture packet data from a tcp port?
