We would like to view the TZSP data from aerohive. However, I did not manage to get this data.
What did I do:
- Enabled a new location server with following settings:
- Checked: Ekahau and Other Location Servers Using the Tazmen Sniffer Protocol
- Rate Threshold for tags: 1000
- Port: 8011
- Multicast MAC address: 01188E000000
- Programmed a small application that accepts TCP connections and logs all data that enters.

Am I forgetting something? Is there some kind of tutorial for this?
Kind regards for any solution or option I should check again.

What are you trying to do with the TZSP data? If you're looking for remote sniffing capability, we actual work directly with Wireshark as a "remote interface".

Andrew McTaggart wrote a great post on how to use the remote sniffer here:

I'm trying to implement a custom location server. So, I'm interested in rssi measumements and angle measurements.

Is this possible with that sniffing tool?

Kind regards and thanks for the quick response,

I have the same problem. I would also like to use the rssi data out of the Aerohive.

If you revert to HiveOS version 3.5r2 (yes, ancient) you likely get data.

Wireshark capture:

Next HiveOS release (likely) this month should allow tzsp to flow again ...
