Wireshark on OS X 10.6 no capture interface

posted Mar 23, 2011, 8:21 PM by Mohammad Saifuddin Sairin
Wireshark 1.4.4 are having problem displaying available capture interface on my Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It seems that the problem is with the file permission. taking ownership on the required files solve the problem. http://goo.gl/JYjAp

before:

macbroke:~ msaifuddin$ ls -lah /dev/bpf*
crw-------  1 root  wheel   23,   0 Mar 24 10:45 /dev/bpf0
crw-------  1 root  wheel   23,   1 Mar 24 10:45 /dev/bpf1
crw-------  1 root  wheel   23,   2 Mar 23 15:03 /dev/bpf2
crw-------  1 root  wheel   23,   3 Mar 23 15:03 /dev/bpf3


after:

macbroke:~ msaifuddin$ sudo chown msaifuddin /dev/bpf*
macbroke:~ msaifuddin$ ls -lah /dev/bpf*
crw-------  1 msaifuddin  wheel   23,   0 Mar 24 10:45 /dev/bpf0
crw-------  1 msaifuddin  wheel   23,   1 Mar 24 10:45 /dev/bpf1
crw-------  1 msaifuddin  wheel   23,   2 Mar 23 15:03 /dev/bpf2
