I don't even remember what the sniffer program in v0.0.4 was using as an
interface (nor do I really want to remember ;-). Most recent versions of
sniffers, like Ethereal and tcpdump, should work fine with the 0.2.x
release of Host AP driver assuming you are using recent version (0.7.x
or newer if I remember correctly) of libpcap.
