    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.
