So i have proxy in the cloud and im accessing it with ssh and now when i want to use wireshark to start capturing traffic on that proxy i must start tshark in that server.

Code :

wireshark -k -i <(ssh [email protected] "tshark -F pcap -w - -f 'not tcp port x'")

This is what i get in terminal:

[[email protected] Domain ~]$ wireshark -k -i <(ssh [email protected] "tshark -F pcap -w - -f 'not tcp port x'")

Enter passphrase for key '/home/OSUserName/.ssh/id_rsa':

[email protected]'s password:

Permission denied, please try again.

[email protected]'s password:

[email protected]'s password:

Fedora 25 And wireshark fully configured on main machine. (2.2.2 version)

No this is not helping :/

Okay, I see two differences from that page: 1. The use of a password, which should either be solved through a ssh-agent or the use of a fifo, and 2. the use if dumpcap instead of tshark.
