Hi, I would like to pipe the output of airodump or airoserv to wireshark in a remote way and thus I will be able to use wireshark tools. However, I'm not able to do, I have tried to do it in two ways.

-First one: create a connection to airserver-ng and the retrieved output is pipped as input to wireshark,but doing this I get an error on wireshark saying that "it doesn't understand the libcap" so the whole process is aborted. -Second one: I send the airodump/airoserv to a .pcap file and later on I open it with wiresark, this works,but after certain span the process is stopped and wireshark shows a message saying that the connection was closed...

I major goal is to see on live the sniffing ouput in wireshark, any suggestion??

Thanks in advance!
