On windows 10 pro, when network interface is not visible in
Wireshark, the reason could be NPF service not installed.
Install WinPcap for Windows 10 (NDIS 6.x driver model) from link. Win10Pcap has the binary-compatibility with the original WinPcap DLLs. You can run Wireshark or other WinPcap-compatible applications with Win10Pcap by simply installing Win10Pcap DLLs, instead of original WinPcap.
Did you ever felt the need of hosting a wordpress site on the web and limit the access to you or your team.
This guide provides the hint to configure a bitnami wordpress multisite installed on aws light sail and ssh tunneling
Install bitnami wordpress installation in amazon light sail. make sure the website is accessible using public IP address
Adapt configuration for wordpress
The first step is to define the primary domain for your WordPress Multi-site instance. as 127.0.0.1 To do this, follow the steps below:
Log in to your server console.
Change to the /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress directory.
Execute the following command to update the domain name to localhost address
sudo ./bnconfig --machine_hostname 127.0.0.1
The bnconfig tool runs automatically every time the server starts to reset the machine hostname to its IP address. Obviously this is undesirable. you must also execute the following command to disable the bnconfig tool for subsequent restarts.
sudo mv bnconfig bnconfig.disabled
Firewall settings in AWS lightsail
In the light-sail networking firewall setting, remove the access to ports 80, 443
Putty for SSH tunneling
configure the putty to connect to the lightsail instance over ssh using ssh private key that could be downloaded from aws lightsail account page.
configure putty to tunnel the remote host port 80 as localhost port 80 like shown in the picture.
Now connect to the remote host using putty
Fire a browser and access the website
now with the local host address 127.0.0.1, you can access the remote website hosted on aws lightsail as if it is hosted on your local machine as long as ssh tunneling is active by putty.
Please note that .xip.io suffix is added by wordpress for multisite instance automatically.
