Need Help Configuring Wireshark
Trying to set up wireshark to capture traffic in my home network, but I'm getting an error message. First off, I used the following code to set up wireshark so as NOT to run as root:
The error message I get when I startup the application is:
$ sudo -s
# sudo apt-get install libcap2-bin
# groupadd -g wireshark
# usermod -a -G wireshark myusername
# chmod 750 /usr/bin/dumpcap
# setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /usr/bin/dumpcap
Any help to sort this out would be greatly appreciated!
Couldn't run /usr/bin/dumpcap in child process: Permission denied
