Re: How-To-Install [WIRESHARK]

Hi HYDROXPH Thanks for your response, however as I have already got "Wireshark" installed on my Linuxmint computer, do I still have to write the first line of your suggested terminal code, or just write the second and third line, or do I uninstall my current version, and write the whole of your term...

Re: How-To-Install [WIRESHARK]

Thanks to those who responded to my “Wireshark” post this time. Particular thanks to Trytip , who hit the nail on the head with why I thought it may be useful:- I have watched your “Youtube link” which illustrated the very things I was hoping to be able to protect my computer from.

Hi Guys, Silver Surfer needs your help!

Hi,phd21 Right! I have watched your video (Thank you for it) and whilst watching it, the "Old Brain" spotted a glimmer of a possibility, due to your mention of the word "MAP" in your video.

Mmmm. Yes Pierre! I guess it’s a case of “There’s no such thing as a free lunch” and everything must have a “Payload”.
