    Default Kismet dump file

    Hello,
    Very much a new comer to BT3 with very basic Linux and Kismet experience, so any help is appreciated. The issue I have is that I cant find the raw data packets that Kismet is recording. I see the different AP's the packets recieved, the MAC's of the AP's and the clients associated, etc, etc. But what I would like to find is the packet dump file, so I can feed it to a wep cracking utility.. (is this making any sense.. does kismet not do this?). I believe I have done this once before way back with TCPDUMP.
    From the manuals I have read it states that kismet logs to the default directory its installed, I found a dump file... dumpfile.h in the /pentest/svn/kismet-devel location, but when I open its code for.. not sure what.
    So with that said, any insight would go a long way.
    Thanks.

    Kismet will not crack WEP so it does make sense, however when presented with the correct key Kismet can decrypt WEP on the fly.

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks for the tips guys,
    Any Balding_Parot you were correct the dump files were created in /root after running kismet. Appreciate the quick responses too.

    For future reference, Kismet will save files to the directory that you start Kismet from.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    You know I read this, and didnt even realize that I was starting kismet from the /Root directory.. I am thinking I should change to /Desktop to see the files appear on the background.

    Thanks.
