Running sudo commands from a script


Hi,

I'm trying to start airmon-ng and airodump-ng from a script, but it won't run without elevated privileges.
I need this to automatically start wireshark on the same channel as a router is configured.
All the systems are on a separate test-network where security is not an issue nor need my scripts to be portable.
Can I simply chmod the scripts from aircrack-ng to execute for any user ?
Or is there a better way that is not anymore complicated than this ?

kind regards

Just start the script with sudo.

Not sure what the problem is. Just putting "sudo" in front of a command in a script will let it work with root/elevated privileges. If you put the NOPASSWD directive into the sudoers file for a user/group, that does it.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in the Linux Newbie forum (your question isn't related to Linux Security) and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Hi,

I found this solution in another thread. I also put the user in the 'sudo' group. I don't know if that was unnecessary, I'm just mentioning it...
Thanks anyway
