Exercise: Setting Up and Monitoring Network Traffic with Wireshark on Kali Linux: A
Hands-on Exercise

  1. Install Wireshark on Kali Linux using the command apt-get install wireshark
  2. Start Wireshark by running the command wireshark
  3. Select the network interface you want to monitor. If you’re unsure which interface to
    use, run the command ifconfig in the terminal to view a list of available interfaces.
  4. Once you’ve selected the interface, click the green “Start” button to begin capturing
    network traffic.
  5. Use the filter bar at the top of the Wireshark window to filter the captured traffic by
    various parameters, such as IP address or protocol.
  6. Analyze the captured traffic by clicking on individual packets and viewing the details
    in the lower pane.
  7. To stop capturing traffic, click the red “Stop” button. You can also save the captured
    traffic to a file by going to File > Save As.
  8. To start monitoring the network traffic again, just repeat the steps above.

Note: In Kali Linux, Wireshark may require super user privilege to access all the network
interfaces, so you may need to run the command as root(sudo) or use the command sudo
