New Homebrew formula for justniffer

Justniffer (http://justniffer.sourceforge.net/) – A very cool little TCP sniffer specialized for capturing HTTP traffic.

Example invocations:

$ justniffer -i en1 -p "port 80"
10.64.168.204 - - [22/Dec/2011:11:45:03 -0800] "GET /wiki/Brew HTTP/1.1" 200 23163 "" "curl/7.19.7 (universal-apple-darwin10.0) libcurl/7.19.7 OpenSSL/0.9.8r zlib/1.2.3"

$ justniffer-grab-http-traffic -d . -i en1

  1. Any tips on how to deal with boost?
    “please specify $BOOST_ROOT in your environment and do not give a PATH to –with-boost option”

  2. Follow up:

    Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.
    So I followed the Boost unix variants instructions, section 5.1.
    The whole library. It took forever.

    The justniffer build started with a:
    sudo ./configure BOOST_ROOT=/usr/local/boost_1_49_0
    and a make then a make install.

    I’m still getting ERROR: BIOCSETIF: eth0: Device not configured.
    I think it’s a mean prank for Mac users to waste their time.
    Either that or you are REALLY good. Well, that AND you are really good.

  3. Fifty compile attempts and a triple post!
    But…
    $ justniffer -i en1 -p “port 80”
    actually produced output!
    The faint of heart might want to stick with wireshark.
