    Default Subtle syntax in using airodump-ng with netmasks

    I recently needed to capture traffic from all APs that had the same MAC OUI. I struggled with the syntax and finally had success by making sure there are two spaces after the bssid value (before the -m). Entering only a single space does not work.

    Here is what finally worked.

    Code:
    airodump-ng -d 00:16:01:00:00:00  -m FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 wlan0
    This did NOT work:

    Code:
    airodump-ng -d 00:16:01:00:00:00 -m FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 wlan0
    Cheers.

    Added code boxes to make the difference between the two commands stand out - they looked exactly the same before I did this.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
