Two scanning modes are currently available.

  • Scanner mode – it relies on the scanner tool via SSH (it simply parses its output). This is active scanning, as the device sends probe request packets on each channel.
  • Sniffer mode – based on the sniffer tool, which is 100% passive scanning mode, but it requires additional configuration. Read more: MTscan – sniffer mode (tzsp).
