The JNIOR can create a network capture! This network capture can be loaded in a sniffer application such as Wireshark for protocol analysis. To do this simply follow a few steps.
- Create a telnet connection to the unit. DO NOT USE THE DCP AS THIS CREATES A LOT OF EXTRA TRAFFIC THAT WILL FILL UP THE BUFFER.
- Execute the
netstat -rcommand. This step is optional. If you are going to conduct a test procedure then you might want to execute this command so that only the traffic that occurs during your test will be captured.
- Conduct your test
- Use the telnet connection to execute the
netstat -ccommand. This will create the capture file with the network buffer content.
- Use the DCP and the folders tab to pull the resulting
network.ngpcapfile. It is in the temp directory. It will be removed when the unit reboots!
