i'd like to use the portable Wireshark and preconfigure it for my colleagues. We often need to decrypt traces with some pre-shared SSL Private keys.
I would like to setup the Keys (IPs, Ports, Protocols, Path to Private keys) and then distribute the config, or pack the config back into a package to redistritube the portable wireshark.
however, i cant seem to find a way to make the paths to the SSL keys relative. I googled and there seems to be questions like this but i did not find a helpful answer.
Is there an easy way to specifiy a relative path in the ssl_keys file? Where would the paths be relative to? To the ssl_key file (i.e. a subfulder with the keys would be in the Data\ folder)?
Thanks for any useful advice.

The paths to the RSA private key is relative to the current working directory (whatever directory that you started Wireshark from, typically your home directory).
To make it truly portable, you could create a wrapper script that changes the working directory to an appropriate location (i.e. the location of your configuration). For Windows, you could for example use this (untested)
