When your triple/quad-play providers refuse to give your VoIP SIP credentials, but allows access to your modem: use Wireshark on the LAN side

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/12

Every now and then I hear about providers that refuse to hand over the VoIP SIP credentials.

If you do have access to your modem, you can Wireshark the WAN side, then reset the modem and capture traffic until it has obtained the VoIP information:

[WayBack] Telfort SIP (getest met Glasvezel) | Het leven van Teus & Simone:

Veel mensen op het forum van Telfort vragen zich af of ze de SIP gegevens kunnen krijgen voor telefonie zodat men de ExperiaBox niet hoeven te gebruiken. Gezien dat de Telfort Support deze gegevens…

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'")

Some Wireshark links

I don’t use Wireshark enough to be fluent, so here are some links and quotes that proved to be useful for me:

Sniffers, Packet Capture – PFSenseDocs – cool, as it uses tcpdump/Wireshark format!

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/13

I hadn’t done a lot with pfSense in the past, which I regret a bit since I discovered this really cool feature: Sniffers, Packet Capture – PFSenseDocs.

The coolness isn’t so much that you can capture packets, but that it’s compatible with tcpdump and Wireshark (which has become available natively for Mac like 2 years ago).

Which means that you can download captures and open them in Wireshark.

So it’s as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Set-up the capture on your router https://a.b.c.d/diag_packet_capture.php and start it
  2. Stop the capture and download the file
  3. Open the file in Wireshark or convert it to text using tshark
