This was a fork of Wireshark version 2.6.8.
The goal of the software is four fold:
- Provide simple visual network diagnostics to resolve configuration issues.
- Demonstrate attacks, information leakage and erroneous devices in local networks and traffic flows.
- Simplify network reconnaissance and manage man-in-the-middle attacks.
- Define network elements symbolically to simplify the explanation and diffusion of knowledge about computer networks.
This software might be useful to you if you:
- Must configure local networks
- Must defend networks
- Penetrate networks
- Make pew pew noises when pinging 126.96.36.199

- Install the software following the commands documented below.
- Prepare a suitable interface to capture packets on.
Read the file
mopt_iface_proto.sh to ensure that it will work with your system.
Download the imgui-src package for the imgui headers.
> wget https://github.com/NSkelsey/monopticon/raw/master/pkg/imgui-src-1.66b-1-any.pkg.tar > sudo pacman -U imgui-src-1.66b-1-any.pkg.tar
Install monopticon and its dependencies from the Arch user repository.
> yay monopticon
Give the zeek binary the capability to capture packets without sudo.
> sudo setcap cap_net_raw=eip `which zeek`
