NAME

       kismet_drone - Wireless sniffing and monitoring remote drone

SYNOPSIS

       kismet_drone [-svh] [-f config-file] [-c capture-source]
       [-C enable-capture-sources] [-p port] [-a allowed-hosts]
       [-N server-name]

DESCRIPTION

       kismet_drone  supports  all  the  capture  sources available to Kismet.
       Instead  of  processing  packets  locally,  kismet_drone   makes   them
       available  via  TCP to a remote kismet_server using the ’drone’ capture
       source.

USAGE

       kismet_drone should be configured  as  you  would  kismet_server.   All
       logging,  packet  dissection,  etc will take place on the remote kismet
       server using the ’drone’ capture source.

       kismet_monitor should be used to place capture sources  into  rfmonitor
       mode as needed, and kismet_hopper should be used for channel hopping.

       kismet_drone is controlled by the kismet_drone.conf config file.

ENCRYPTION

       It  may  be  desireable to encrypt the packet stream between the remote
       drone and the kismet system.  Standard  SSH  packet  tunneling  or  any
       other tunneling/forwarding system may be used, and is recommended.
