Analyze WiFi packet traffic via command line
Authored by: Ptitboul on Dec 10, '10 04:55:49AM
This is Snow Leopard only. Older versions had this software, but with only the "legacy" options. You could do /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport -s but not /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport scan (which gives the same result). The new /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport en1 sniff capability can be replaced by using /usr/sbin/tcpdump -nei en1 -s 0 -w /tmp/XXXX.pcap
