kismet_drone.conf — Wireless sniffing and monitoring drone configuration file


kismet_drone uses a minimalized configuration file, similar in options to the main kismet server configuration file. By default, the drone config is in /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf. A default configuration is included with Kismet but it is likely you will need to modify it to suit your hardware and preferences.
