Using Wireshark

Julia Evans explains how she uses Wireshark:

Usually I use Wireshark to debug networking problems in production. My Wireshark workflow is:

  1. Capture packets with tcpdump (typically something like sudo tcpdump port 443 -w output.pcap
  2. scp the pcap file to my laptop (scp host:~/output.pcap .)
  3. Open the pcap file in Wireshark (wireshark output.pcap)

That’s pretty simple! But once you have a pcap file with a bunch of packets on your laptop, what do you do with it?

Wireshark is my go-to tool for diagnosing networking issues.
