AP packet capture with wireshark

I have tried do some packet capture traffic from AP using wireshark 0.99.7 and 1.4.1 downloaded from the tools in the support area, using the ARUBA udp 5555 port, but I can't get anything, is there any requirement to do it?

Re: AP packet capture with wireshark

Yes, I have already read it, but following the indications I can't get any packet in wireshark.

I have AOS 5.0.3.0

Re: AP packet capture with wireshark

Does the capture go from AP to PC directly or it goes throught controller?

AP to PC directly on port 5555

Re: AP packet capture with wireshark

If I start wireshark capturing with my own NIC using a filter with source ip = ip of my Campus AP and then I start the AP packet capture, I don't see anything. It is correct?

Re: AP packet capture with wireshark

May be the problem is with winpcap, I use winpcap 4.1 and I don't know if it is supported with this version.

I use w7, so winpcap 3.1 is not supported with w7, please, could you confirm if wireshark-win32-aruba-1.4.1 only works with winpcap 3.1?

Re: AP packet capture with wireshark

If you are streaming from an access point to a management station, I don't think Winpcap comes into play.  The management station just needs to receive traffic from the ip address of the AP on port 5555.

 

What are you trying to do, exactly?
