Is there any way to modify, set a rewrite rule in Wireshark?


Is there any way to modify a request/response in Wireshark, as one can do with Charles Proxy? I'm trying to sniff a few OTT devices and I find Wireshark the better option, or only option. However, I need to find and append a "true" value to an http call. Easily done with Charles, as traffic passes through it. Any ideas on how one might pull this off in Wireshark?

One Answer:


No, Wireshark is a display tool, not a modification tool.
