Wireshark On Mac

I keep forgetting how to make Wireshark recognise interfaces. So a few notes.

First, figure out your username:

Someones-MacBook-Pro:dev username$ whoami
username

Then you need to edit /dev/bpf* so they’re readable by the current user.

sudo chown username bpfx

This command needs to be reapplied every time you restart.
