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.
