I get occasional emails and messages requesting that I produce some updated Wireshark quickstart videos. Topics suggested ranged from basic navigation, to how I configure Wireshark and of course troubleshooting scenarios.
I went back and was surprised that some of my Wireshark quickstart tutorials are 2 – 4 years old.
So time to refresh some of the basics and provide some tips and tricks along the way.
In this video, I review the Preferences pane in Wireshark. If you use Wireshark regularly, you should be familiar with this screen so you can easily modify important options, such as your pane layout or default interfaces.
I could have produced a 30 minute all encompassing video covering many topics, but many of you have told me that you prefer my many smaller, specific videos instead.
That way you can choose a specific topic, knowing that within a few minutes you’ll be done.
