Netstumbler.org pointed to a great roundup of open source WLAN analyzers this morning. If you’re looking to do some access point sniffing, rouge AP hunting, or just a general security check, this collection of tools is great.

Ouch. If this is true it’s going to be a major setback for Apple’s Muticast DNS (which is already known as both Rendezvous and Zeroconf). The timing could also not be much worse. Rendezvous/Zeroconf is poised to find its way in to daily use across platforms. Apple recently released a technology preview of Rendezvous on Windows, re-released Rendezvous for Linux, and made awesome use of Rendezvous in their Airport Express with Airtunes product.
This will be a major blow to a technology that already has confusing dual-branding. I do like the retro throwback reference to Appletalk though.
