How to see all lines in the terminal window?


Hello guys,

Have you tried pipe the output of airodump through more
Like:
Code:
# airodump | more

Of you could pipe it to a file then use your favourite editor to examine it with something like:
Code:
airodump > airodump.log

You could also use the Shift-PageUp and Shift-PageDown key combinations to scroll back and forward through the terminal display.

From: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2034890

Code:
$ man airodump-ng
-w <prefix>, --write <prefix>
              Is  the dump file prefix to use. If this option is not given, it will only show data on the screen. Beside this file a CSV file with the same filename as the capture
              will be created.

Code:
airodump-ng -c 1,6,11 wlan0 | more
An example.
Just type out whichever command it is you want to run, followed by the pipe sign '|' and "more".
The same goes for less, or to redirect the output to a file as I suggested use the '>' and then a file name like so:
Code:
 airodump-ng -c 1,6,11 wlan0 > airodump.log
Then open the file airodump.log with vi or nano, I like nano so I'd use:
Code:
nano airodump.log

You can set your prefences for terminal to unlimited scroll
Open terminal go to Edit>>Profile Preferences>>Scrolling

Look at something like this:
http://linuxcommand.org/lts0060.php
It's a good idea to learn some basic shell commands before you start playing with tools like Aircrack.
