iOS sniffer

Hi,

 

Is there a packet analyzer app for iOS devices? Looking or something similar to wireshark to troubleshoot application delay issues on an iPad.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

To my knowledge there are no packet analyzers/sniffers for iOS because apps have limited access to raw network interfaces.

 

You can capture traffic from iOS device connected to a Mac with a USB cable, see instructions here:

Thanks! This was very helpful. Wonder why the EAP headers are stripped though. That could be useful when troubleshooting authentication issues.
