  • closed mode sniffing

    Hi,

    In a closed mode. Which tools can be used to sniff probe requests and responses from another associated station?

      Is closed mode when you close all your ports so ALL TRAFFIC IS BLOCKED, IN AND OUT, making it impossible to do anything? If that is what your refering to then think about it logically, no traffic yet you want to access the net...

        <sigh> Google is your friend
        perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

            sorry, i didn't search google before posting

            'Closed mode' usually means that the beacon frames are still broadcast, but the SSID element of them is hidden (zeroed or removed; I haven't checked that). In addition, the AP might not send probe responses to probe requests that do not have the correct SSID
            I haven't heard this called closed mode before.

            on a side note- after searching google and it not returning anything obviously useful, has anyone else noticed a downfall in the usefulness of google lately? it seems to not return the same level of useful results at the top of your search. I no longer "feel lucky" when I google.

              Good info.

              I also agree that Google seems to be less effective, but i'm loathe to go anywhere else...
