Capture packets in wireshark from the rpcacp://[IP]/any interface


    Jan Fuchs says:

    Can you tell me how to put the wlan interface into “monitor” (mon) mode on a Ruckus AP (esp. R710)?

    negeric says:

    You should not have to explicitly put an interface into monitor mode. Each WLAN interface should have a monitor interface associated. What is the output of the get wanlist command?

    Thanks for the reply!
    There is no “MON” interface on my R710.

    Interesting, we are using 7372 units and have a monitor on each radio.
    wlan100 down MON wlan100 0 00:00:00:00:00:00
    wlan101 down MON wlan101 1 00:00:00:00:00:00

    You can try to connect wireshark to wlan100 and wlan101 to see if it’s just hidden in the output.
