In this tutorial we will take alook on how to install WireShark on Debian 9, Ubuntu 16.04, and most of debian based distros.

 

What is WireShark?

 

WireShark a very handy tool you can use to analysing the data, network packets for reasearches and security issues in the network.

 

How to install WireShark?

 

In order to install WireShark on your Debian system you will need to get started by updating and upgrading your system by opening your terminal (ALT+T) and type the following commands:

 

~$ sudo apt-get update

~$ sudo apt-get -y upgrade

 

In Debian the WireShark package is already in debian repositories so need to add any. To install WireShark write the command below:

 

~$ sudo apt-get install wireshark -y

 

During the installation, it will prompt you to configure dumpcap for non-superusers, Select ‘yes’ and then hit enter.

 

When the WireShark is done installing you need to change the mod for the dumpcap file to allow non-root-users using WireShark. By typing the command below:

 

~$ sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/dumpcap 

 

That's all now WireShark is fully installed on your systemc. :D 

 

Note: To start using WireShark go to your applications > Internet > WireShark.
