Working with Wireshark
On our second week, we were make known the software called Wireshark. Wireshark is a very powerful network analyzer for window, mac or linux. It’s a tool that is used to check data passing through network interface, ethernet, wireless radio, lan etc. By being able to use this software we can check the traffic caused by different browser etc. Before we start using wire shark it is essential to know the IP address to identify particular network or your own network.
To find the IP address – first of all I clicked on setting then on network – after this dialogue box appeared where it shows my 8-digit IP address
Then I open the wire shark to capture the packets or see all the traffic After the software is started, on the left hand side there is a capture section. On which I had option to choose the device I want to capture, I was also able to modify all the data by clicking on the capture options.
Once I click on capture option, another dialogue box (option box) appeared.
Disable the promiscuous mode as some network interfaces might not support promiscuous mode, and some drivers might not allow promiscuous mode to be turned on
Then click on start, it will start capturing all the different traffic that are going into the interface.
