Wireshark doesn’t detect any network interfaces?

On windows 10 pro, when network interface is not visible in

Wireshark, the reason could be NPF service not installed. 

Network interface is not visible on wireshark
Notwork interface not visible on wireshark

Solution

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.

Network interface visible on windows 10

Hope this solve this problem!

WordPress Multisite on AWS light sail as Intranet

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

Preparation

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.
