    Default ettercap-gtk issue

    I wast trying out some of the new tools on BackTrack 4 when I came across ettercap-gtk. I tried to launch it from the BackTrack list and it did nothing. I tried from the command line and it said command not found. I'm running BT4 under vmware on my macbook.(not the vmware image)

    Ettercap-gtk is not installed in BT4b. If you try to install ettercap-gtk then you'll uninstall ettercap-menu and fasttrack

    Just go with the command line ettercap or use the curses GUI

    It not compile with GTK...

    root@bt:~# ettercap -G

    ettercap NG-0.7.3 copyright 2001-2004 ALoR & NaGA


    GTK support not compiled in ettercap

    root@bt:~#

    Looking on installed packages we see:

    root@bt:~# aptitude search ettercap
    i A ettercap - Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN
    i A ettercap-common - Common support files and plugins for ettercap
    p ettercap-gtk - Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN
    i ettercap-menu - Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN
    root@bt:~# dpkg -l | grep ettercap
    ii ettercap 1:0.7.3-1.2ubuntu4 Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN
    ii ettercap-common 1:0.7.3-1.2ubuntu4 Common support files and plugins for ettercap
    ii ettercap-menu 0.7.3-1.2-bt4 Multipurpose sniffer/interceptor/logger for switched LAN

    root@bt:~# dpkg -L ettercap-menu
    /.
    /usr
    /usr/local
    /usr/local/share
    /usr/local/share/applications
    /usr/local/share/applications/ettercap-gtk.desktop
    /usr/local/share/applications/ettercap.desktop

    in Debian/Ubuntu systems, when we install ettercap-gtk, the GTK interface works... but there something broke here:

    root@bt:~# aptitude install ettercap-gtk

    0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 233kB of archives. After unpacking 127kB will be used.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    fasttrack: Depends: ettercap but it is not installable
    ettercap-menu: Depends: ettercap but it is not installable
    The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

    Remove the following packages:
    ettercap-menu
    fasttrack

    Score is 188

    Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]

    Yes, this is a dependency/conflict problem between BT4 and Ubuntu packages...

    I like GTK interface of ettercap, but anyone can survive without...

    Also I was trying out the man in the middle attack with ettercap on the commnd line, and the original commands doesn't work for me.
    Command: ettercap -M -p -q -T ARP // //
    It response back with -T not supported in MitM
    Then I'll take the -T out, and it would say -p not supported.
    I checked the man page, and every thing seems to be the same did they change the commands?

    ettercap -T -q -p -M ARP // //

    The CL version is so much easier to use. Plus, you can hit the space bar and see the traffic going in.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!
