View Full Version : [ubuntu] Kismet questions

February 4th, 2009, 03:27 AM
1. If I know the SSID, channel and WPA key, should I input those in the kismet.conf file? Or should I be using a GUI and filtering those somehow?

2. In kismet.conf there a setting for the wepkey. Would that be the equivalent of the wpakey if I know it?

3. Finally, the documentation mentions something about capturing layer 2 and raw packets. What does that entail, everything such as HTTP, FTP or MSN for that matter?

So far, I have 8.10 running from a flash drive, on a HP Compaq nc6400 laptop with an Intel 3495 chipset.

Hoping these are valid questions.
