Fun With Wireshark: Introduction!



I haven't used Wireshark in quite some time, so now I had a bit of a re-affilation curve to deal with. How do I know if I'm capturing from my Eth0 interface?

So I pulled up my Network Utility and told it, "Hey, ping my website until I tell you stop."





And it did, and you can see a transcript of the conversation below.




"Hello?" "Hello!"

Step one, complete.

Now, can I be a passive observer on a network and spy on others? Let's see. I joined a hotspot I set up on my LG Stylo called Broadcasting. It's only this Macbook and my iPhone (Remember that?)


Now I try to sniff packets between my iPhone and my Stylo from my Macbook. I keep not getting anything. This page tells me that we should be able to, but I can't seem to snipe it from the air, even being in promiscuous mode.


It's very adamant about having the correct time right now.

I'm going to check out David Bombal's Wireshark course on Udemy.

EDIT 07/12 - I should see if the Xfinity L3 Switch has port mirroring capabilities.



EMPLOYERS: This is me using a variety of technologies (LG with Android, iPhone 8 with iOS, Macbook with OSX (Mojave)) to test network connectivity.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Search and Infiltrate: How to Deeply Investigate a Company's People [6/4/2020]

Latest Update - 6/4/2020


This is a bit of an impromptu post after reading this article.

I had a small thread about this on Twitter, a blog post is a lot better to get the information out in a clear way.

Have you ever used Recruitin.net, came across a group of people who match Your Dream Company, Dream Location, and do your Dream Job on LinkedIn...and they're not active?

What was the POINT, am I right?  A place for professionals to network, but they're not active ...because they have a job to do! You want to be like that!

Unfortunately, in this day and age, unless you have a 'relationship' with someone, they're not going to help you.

Hm. 

(Note: 'relationship' is different than relationship).

I'm not here to talk bad about recruiters - They have a difficult job, I know I couldn't do it! - And even they want a relationship before they place you somewhere, competency be damned.

What do you do instead?
