Hello Everyone,

I am just curious if any one know what version of Kismet is in the new Knoppix 3.2? Or is it even in version 3.2?? Currently, Kismet is in 3.1, but it is only kismet v 1.4, which btw doesn't have all the feature as the later versions.

Anyway... thanks for any information that you guys can provide.

I would also be interested in a newer version of kismet being put in the iso disk.


If anyone has a modded 3.2 disk with kismet new version let me know!

How do you typically start a kismet session? I typed kismet in a root xterm it seems that it's more complex than that.

1) up the interfaces
2) kismet_monitor -i interface
3) kismet -i interface

default is for cisco card.
depending on what card you are using ... you may need to add a -t for types

I use Cisco Airo Net 352 PCMCIA card and Knoppix 3.2

1) edited config files /etc/kismet
2) ifconfig eth0 up
3) kismet_monitor -i eth0
or
echo "Mode: r" >> /proc/drivers/aironet/eth0/Config
echo "Mode: y" >> /proc/drivers/aironet/eth0/Config
4) Checked /proc/drivers/aironet/eth0/Config and mode is "yna (any) bss rfmon
5) kismet -i eth0

FATAL: Source 0 (cisco-cap): pcap reported netlink type 1 (EN10MB) for eth0. This probably
means you're not in RFMON mode or your drivers are reporting a bad value. Make sure you have run kismet_monitor.
Starting UI...
FATAL: Could not connect to localhost:2501.
Terminating...

What is the problem? Should I try airo-linux drivers from sourceforge?

Did you try

ifconfig wifi0 up

and then as #5
kismet -i wifi0

or, try this script:
#!/bin/sh
cardctl scheme kismet
ifconfig eth0 down
kismet_monitor -i eth0
ifconfig wifi0 up
echo "Mode: r" > /proc/driver/aironet/eth0/Config
echo "Mode: y" > /proc/driver/aironet/eth0/Config
kismet -i wifi0

Yes! It works! Thank you!

I think key line is "cardctl scheme kismet"... But what exactly does it mean?

I tried the above example and still not connect to the server. Any thoughts?

Thanks
