How to add non root user in using Kali Linux Wireshark


 

  In this tutorial I'm going to share on How to add non root user in using Kali Linux Wireshark .In order for Wireshark to capture packet, it need to use dumpcap file. You will get  "There are no interfaces on which capture can be done "error if you don't configure the  new user to use dumpcap file.

No interface to capture

1)Add group that will use dump cap file and add user in the group.
In this example, I create a group called wireshark.

1.1) creater a group
orca@omura:~$sudo groupadd wireshark


1.2) add user in the group

orca@omura:~$sudo usermod -a -G wireshark orca


Add group and add user

2) Make  dumpcap file to work with wireshark group.and configure the network

2.1)Make dumpcap file to work with "wireshark group" and change file permission


orca@omura:~$sudo chgrp wireshark /usr/bin/dumpcap

orca@omura:~$sudo chmod 750 /usr/bin/dumpcap


2.2) Set network privileges for dumpcap


orca@omura:~$sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /usr/bin/dumpcap


setting network privileges for dumpcap


3) reboot  system

orca@omura:~$sudo reboot   




System reboot


4)Log in with the new user account and try to capture using Wireshark


Wireshark should able to work
