I’m learning Kismet https://www.kismetwireless.com I need a way to do remote wireless surveys. If I can send non-technical $customer a Magic Box that will send me a survey. WiFi problems are very environmental so having a second opinion of the environment will help me get my head around the issues.
I’m building Kismet from their git repo. The newer versions have a web interface that seems very enticing. With an internet connected device and a nice VPN overlay, I think I could get the remote information I need.
Kismet has instructions to build under Ubuntu. But for $reasons I’m running Fedora. I’ve been tinkering around with the list of required packages and I think I’ve hit the magic list:
sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel git libmicrohttpd-devel pkg-config zlib-devel libnl3-devel libcap-devel libpcap-devel ncurses-devel NetworkManager-libnm-devel libdwarf libdwarf-devel elfutils-devel libsqlite3x-devel protobuf-devel protobuf-c-devel protobuf-compiler protobuf-c-compiler lm_sensors-devel libusb-devel fftw-devel
