Kismet and large filter strings

Kismet and large filter strings

Postby layer2 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 9:05 am

I've been trying to load a rather large filter (about 1000 BSSIDs) into Kismet using the filter_tracker syntax.

It doesn't work.

Kismet dies with the following error message...

FATAL: Couldn't parse filter line, no '(' found

Reducing the length of the filter string eliminates this error but doesn't really solve my problem.

Any ideas?
Cheers,
Eric

It sounds like dragorn put a file size limit in there. How big is the filter?

You might want to also post this at dragorn's forums at Kismet, but please keep us informed.

The filter string is 18,314 characters in length. I'll post something over at the Kismet forums -- thanks ;)
