00:00:00.780 --> 00:00:03.939
folks sometimes when you're working with
BBC you're gonna want to be able to do

00:00:03.939 --> 00:00:04.589
some packing

00:00:04.589 --> 00:00:08.120
level debugging the packets going into
and out of the BBC

00:00:08.120 --> 00:00:12.000
are the problem there is that the mobutu
version

00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:15.839
that comes with BBC you go to 1404 has a

00:00:15.839 --> 00:00:19.630
Wireshark does not have an open floor
die sectors so we're gonna teach you how

00:00:19.630 --> 00:00:21.240
to actually upgrade that

00:00:21.240 --> 00:00:26.390
you have an OpenFlow day sector in your
Wireshark so there's many ways to update

00:00:26.390 --> 00:00:29.460
your Wireshark on a boon to 1404

00:00:29.460 --> 00:00:33.460
I'm you can google that we're gonna show
you the easiest pathway

00:00:33.460 --> 00:00:36.780
and that involves putting a personal
repository and apt-get

00:00:36.780 --> 00:00:40.230
if you're in control that have to choose
one or the other mechanisms

00:00:40.230 --> 00:00:44.960
ok if ok so let's go ahead and add that
personal repository to our apt at

00:00:44.960 --> 00:00:47.989
log into our BBC then we'll do a pseudo

00:00:47.989 --> 00:00:51.350
apt add a repository and then the name
the

00:00:51.350 --> 00:00:55.750
personal repository will have to enter a
password for pseudo

00:00:55.750 --> 00:00:58.820
he'll explain what it does we'll have to
hit enter

00:00:58.820 --> 00:01:02.000
and after we do that home it

00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:05.150
will go ahead and add a repository the
next thing we need to do a pseudo out

00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:05.650
cat

00:01:05.650 --> 00:01:11.750
update which will update apt-get with
repositories information

00:01:11.750 --> 00:01:14.590
okay so the next step is to simply do
sudo apt-get

00:01:14.590 --> 00:01:18.910
stall where sharks or go ahead and do
that and then we'll have to say yes

00:01:18.910 --> 00:01:25.910
to it having to install during install
you're gonna be

00:01:27.470 --> 00:01:31.210
past particular question about dumpy cap

00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:34.650
arm it can allow you to

00:01:34.650 --> 00:01:38.790
run Wireshark without doing super user
but in our test that didn't work for us

00:01:38.790 --> 00:01:41.890
we select know here and we suggest you
select know here

00:01:41.890 --> 00:01:45.640
as well at least like no

00:01:45.640 --> 00:01:49.810
finishes up to install and then we'll do
it just which Wireshark to make sure aka

00:01:49.810 --> 00:01:56.810
installed and we're using the one we
expect okay so let's run Wireshark and

00:01:58.630 --> 00:02:00.260
see if we go public sector

00:02:00.260 --> 00:02:03.780
um so we go ahead you're going to do
pseudo Wireshark

00:02:03.780 --> 00:02:07.420
on its gonna give us some warnings we're
gonna say okay that's about running at a

00:02:07.420 --> 00:02:08.000
pseudo

00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:11.300
they were gonna pick the interface and
start

00:02:11.300 --> 00:02:15.739
capture impact on that interface we do
not have anything going on because we

00:02:15.739 --> 00:02:16.700
haven't run a mi nina

00:02:16.700 --> 00:02:20.840
here we're gonna go ahead and do that
here in a second so good or many

00:02:20.840 --> 00:02:21.450
Netscreen

00:02:21.450 --> 00:02:25.930
lower rate will start a minute session
and suddenly we're capturing packets

00:02:25.930 --> 00:02:29.920
on that interface you can see atomic
bomb are labeled OpenFlow

00:02:29.920 --> 00:02:33.860
that means we do have an OpenFlow die
Sektor and in fact if we look at those

00:02:33.860 --> 00:02:34.900
open for packets

00:02:34.900 --> 00:02:38.300
they do give us quite a bit of
information about an open topic
