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'")
