How I use Wireshark – Julia Evans

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/03

Cool set of steps on [WayBackHow I use Wireshark – Julia Evans who uses the combination of tcpdump to dump traffic in pcap files and Wireshark to analyse the pcap files after copying them using scp. On many platforms, Wireshark can also capture the ptrace files for you.

Via: [WayBack] 🔎Julia Evans🔍 on Twitter: “how I use Wireshark” which has some nice comments including:

  • adding ptrace to your tool-kit
  • not needing scp for copying, as you can do [WayBack] dumpcap over an existing ssh connection:
    • You might like this snippet, saves you the need to do the scp dance: wireshark -k -i <(ssh <IP> "sudo dumpcap -P -w - -f 'not tcp port 22'")

Beyond compare – prefix any registry key comparisons with reg:\\

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/03

When you start with a blank registry comparison, then you need to compare keys copied from RegEdit with reg:\

For instance, when fixing [WayBack] Delphi fails to start after Windows did some “Program Compatibility Assistant” magic to it when BDS.exe crashed because the compiler ran out of memory:… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+ I compared these:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare 4

Mac OS X beyond Yosemite: Ctrl-Click to add/remove an item from a selection fails in Windows on VMware Fusion

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/03

Somewhere after Yosemite, braindead Mac OS X forcibly maps “Ctrl+Click” to right-click. In past versions, you could disable but those days have gone.

This means that inside Windows on VMware Fusion, you cannot add/remove items to/from a selection any more (for instance in the Windows Explorer).

Various workarounds turned up in my Google Search, but only this one works:

Holding down CTRL + OPTION together and LEFT CLICKING will do this.
