### Using nexutil over UDP on Nexus 5
To be able to communicate with the firmware without root priviledges, we created a UDP interface accessible through the `libnexio`, which is also used by `nexutil`. You first have to prove to the firmware that you generally have root priviledges by setting a securtiy cookie. Then you can use it for UDP based connections. Your wlan0 interface also needs an IP address in the 192.168.222.0/24 range or you have to change the default nexutil `broadcast-ip`:

* Set the IP address of the wlan0 interface: `ifconfig wlan0 192.168.222.1 netmask 255.255.255.0`
* Set the security cookie as root: `nexutil -x<cookie (uint)>`
* Start a UDP connection for example to activate monitor mode: `nexutil -X<cookie> -m1`
