English [Auto] Now that we've looked at what the Course is going to cover the first thing I want to do is actually download the tool so you see here on my screen I'm at Wireshark to work. So you just go to WDW wireshark or over in this icon here you click and download Windows Installer 64 bit you and you have multiple platforms. But in our case we're just going to go ahead and use the Windows installer. So we're going to do is we want to add downloads. We're just going to install the actual tool. So a good tool downloads. And we don't like it now so you really need to install. You can read through this if you want the license agreement. It's always nice to read through this but unfortunately nobody really ever does. So click on i agree and then you see this is what it's going to install these different things. Now teach shark is a command line version of Word shark. But for now this is everything I need. And also this User Guide is an excellent guide for doing actual wireshark testing. It shows you how to do so many different things and worser. So we just accept all the defaults. There's nothing here that we're going to actually change. And now this is the part where sometimes people get confused. Now it tells me I've currently got install Blimpie cat version 4 point 1.3 and it asked me Do I want to install in picquet version 4 point 1.3. So since it shows that the picquet version that I currently have installed is the same I don't have to worry about installing it again so I can just accept the fact that it's already installed Nicolete next. Now you might actually have to install when pre-cap. If you've never installed it before an install USP ACAP all those types of things. This is nothing we're going to do because we're not actually doing any USP cap traffic. So again just accept the defaults and click install and that's pretty much the process of install and worshipped. And now to install once it gets done installing you click next and will click Grun worse or cure just we open close out here. And that's all we wanted to do in this module and this module we went to the wire that org site we downloaded our Schork utility and we installed it and now it's actually ready to go. Now in the next module we're going to go and we'll go into this in more detail. We'll look at some slides and explain this user interface that you're looking at now. And as you see here it's already reading information from the wireless adapter on this computer. Again Wireshark. Once it's installed it starts looking at your network traffic. That's a feature of the newer version. The older versions didn't do this. And that concludes what we wanted to do in this module. Again next step in this section we're going to actually do the interface and will review how to use this user interface and what exactly we're looking at. When you're looking at a worse or packet capture.
