Ideas for improvement[edit]

This is a collection of things I'd like to see added to this article. I plan to write this stuff myself, but, if others in the meantime would like to add, I would appreciate it. godsmoke 09:40, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Explanation of RFMON (this may spread into its own page ... but it's a small enough topic to cover here for now). Also explaining why Windows can't support a Kismet server (due to lack of available RFMON drivers).
  • Applications/scripts bundled with Kismet (mainly GPSMap)
  • Various front ends (gkismet, kismet-qte, wirekismet)
  • Sharp Zaurus support
  • Supported cards
  • Links to/comparison with other scanners both free and commercial


Wiki page title[edit]

So, the wiki title of this page is "Kismet (program)" usually in the case of a piece of software's name conflicting with other wiki pages, the title is changed to "NAME (software)" it's more accurate than "program". Any objections to moving it? godsmoke 06:36, 17 October 2005 (UTC)


Protocol[edit]

The last paragraph states that the client communicates with the server using a proprietary protocol. Am I missing something here? Kismet is GPL. How would you keep the protocol secret? 217.208.71.65 23:57, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

That was my fault -- and you're absolutely correct -- was just a mistake of phrase. godsmoke 03:14, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

help using kismet:[edit]

I was wondering if someone would tell me how i run kismet on windows and if there are any hardware specs required.
