    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
