Wireshark integration with UNetLab on OSX

Why should those Windows users have all the fun? Wouldn’t you like to be able to capture traffic in Wireshark on your Mac? Well, you have come to the right place! We can now have Wireshark integration with OSX in UNetLab!

So, the idea is that when you select Capture from the right-click pop-up menu and select the interface in UNL, then Wireshark should launch.

The problem is that there is no handler for the “capture://” part of the URL. We can edit handlers if they already exist, but it’s not easy to create them as and when we want them.

So, we need to create one, and the program to actually run Wireshark.

This can be done through AppleScript, and actually can perform both actions – launching Wireshark, and associating “capture://” with the program.

After a couple of hours digging around, I came across a workable solution.

I created a script, and after a bit of testing, it’s now turned into a workable solution.

To install it, you can download the app from the link below, just unzip it, and copy the app to your Applications directory.

Here is a video of it in action:
