How to Purchase CommView for WiFi

Using Aruba Remote Capture

Important: This chapter describes experimental functionality that might or might not work as expected depending on the specific implementation in third party software and hardware. No technical support will be provided for this functionality.

In addition to the remote capture functionality provided by CommView Remote Agent, CommView for WiFi can also capture traffic from access points manufactured by Aruba.

To switch to remote monitoring mode, click File => Remote Monitoring Mode. An additional toolbar will appear in the CommView for WiFi main window next to the main toolbar. Click the New Aruba Remote Capture button to open a new connection window.

Remote packet capture must be initiated on the AP side using the command-line interface. Aruba remote capture uses the following syntax:

pcap start <interface-mac> <target-ipaddr> <target-port> 4 <maxlen>

Example:

pcap start 18:64:72:e3:6a:10 192.168.0.2 5000 4 2346

Once you have configured remote capture on the AP side, specify the port number that you have chosen and click Connect to begin receiving packets from your Aruba AP.
