Hi all,

I've got a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8.5 and Kismet. I'm trying to monitor the traffic between two iPhones which are transferring files using an ad-hoc wireless network. My MacBook isn't part of this network. When I try to intercept packets on all 14 channels, I only get broadcast packets from the iPhones and a few stray/malformed packets from other nearby networks. I'm using Wireshark to open the .pcap files created by Kismet.

Does anyone know how I can monitor this traffic? Is there something wrong with my method or setup? Thanks!!
