Sniffing on the local network


Recommended Posts

Switch to wireshark. And use a consumer-level distro instead of Kali if you're not yet comfortable with Linux.

Use Wireshark doesn't seem like starters level program to use.

That be like jumping into a deep end of the pool rather starting out in the waist deep water to learn to swim.

This is way i make the kinda videos i do is because a lot of the guys who make videos wanna use big tech words that beginners don't understand i try to explain at a beginners level so that even someone with no computer knowledge can do it.

I have been lacking on releasing videos like what hes wanting to do but im mainly trying to redo all my old ones heh.

Will get around to doing a video on doing something like this when i can.

I have a few scripts on my site that were made by some other people online they are pretty decent for sniffing data like passwords and stuff like that.

But if you really wanna understand the behind the scenes of the tools you might wanna focus on looking at their source code and researching what the file is doing.

I would recommend wireshark. While Zara is right that it can be very complicated, it is a lot easier on the eyes than ettercap, especially the way it organizes and color-codes the packets. The best advice that I can give is google and youtube. Just like google, youtube has pretty much everything.

I believe in ettercap, there are plenty if tutorials out there for this attack, I'm sure your missing a few little settings.

on backtrack. A fewcommands

Locate etter.conf

You have to edit 3 lines, first set guid => 0

And scrole down you will find 2 lines of iptables, remove the # on both iptable lines to enable

Then you have to locate IP_forwarding and edit it to show 1

Ettercap -T -q -M ARP // //

I do agree with whar wassaid above, I would start out with a distro like Linux mint or something...

on your test machine try surfing multiple websites like yahoo.com msn.com etc...
