Unformatted text preview: ETTERCAP-CURSES(8) ETTERCAP-CURSES(8) NAME ettercap NG-0.7.3 - Man page for the Ncurses GUI. GENERAL DESCRIPTION The curses GUI is quite simple and intuitive. It is menu-driven. Every flag or function can be modified/called through the upper menu. All user messages are printed in the bottom window. If you want to see the old messages, you can scroll the window buffer by pressing the UP, DOWN, PPAGE, NPAGE keys. The middle part is used to display information or dialogs for the user. The menus can be opened by pressing the relative hotkey. For the menus the hotkey is represented by the uppercase initial letter of the title (e.g. S for Sniffing, T for Targets). The functions within a menu can be called by pressing the hotkey depicted near the function name on the right. Hotkeys prefixed with C- are to be used in conjunction with the CTRL key (e.g. C-f means CTRL+f). You can switch the focus between the objects on the screen by pressing the TAB key or by clicking on it with the mouse (if you are running ettercap within an xterm). Mouse events are supported only through the xterm. You can use the mouse to select objects, open a menu, choose a function, scroll the elevators for the scrolling windows, etc etc. When you open multiple windows in the middle part, they will overlap. Use the TAB key to switch between them. Use CTRL+Q to close the focused window. You can also use CTRL+Q to close the input dialog if you want to cancel the requested input. (i.e. you have selected the wrong function and you want to go back). To hav e a quick help on the shortcuts you can use against a particular window press the SPACE key. A help window will be displayed with a list of shortcuts that can be used. If the window does not appear, no short- cuts are available. HOW TO SELECT IT To use the ncurses GUI you have to:- compile ettercap with ncurses support (obviously)- run it with the -C flag Passing the -C flag is sufficient, but if you want you can pass other flags that will be automatically set for the ncurses GUI. You will be able to override them using the menu to change the options. ONCE STARTED As soon as ettercap is launched with the Ncurses GUI, you will be prompted with multiple choices. The first screen lets you select if you want to open a pcap file or dump the sniffed traffic to a file, if you want unified sniffing or bridged one, permits you to set a pcap file on the captured traffic and enables you to log all the sniffed data.all the sniffed data....
