Ettercap not finding hosts
It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols and includes many features for network and host analysis. Download the install the Ettercap package from Ettercap. Warning: Do not execute this on a network or system that you do not own. Execute this only on your own network or system for learning purpose only.
Also, do not execute this on any production network or system. Ettercap has the following 4 types of user interface. So please have a look into it, and this article will cover how to perform it practically. The following diagram explains the network architecture. All the attacks explained here will be performed on the following network diagram only. Using Ettercap in a production environment is not advisable. Launch Ettercap using the following command in the machine.
It will list the available network interface as shown below. Choose the one which you want to use for ARP Poisoning. The next step is to add the target list for performing the ARP poisoning. Here we will add It will list the available hosts in the LAN as follows:. The following dialog box will open. Now Arp is poisoned, i. In-order to verify it, From You will get the ICMP packets from There are many plugins which comes by default with EtterCap. Once such plugin is called as DNSSpoof.
We are going to use that plugin to test the DNS spoofing. Here, Once ARP is done, follow the below steps. Now from Once everything is done, remember to stop MITM attack as follows:. Do not execute this on a network or system that you do not own. Why am I not able to select wlan interface for sniffing.
It only takes a minute to sign up. I have an android phone and a tv box on the LAN. I just want to capture the phone traffic to learn the MiTM attack.
I found here that 'If you run it on an interface that is enabled, but not connected to a network, Ettercap will complain that "ARP poisoning needs a non empty hosts list"'. The problem is that you are using the NAT adapter.
Since you are behind a NAT, your Kali machine and the target machines are on two distinct layer 2 subnets, and ARP will not traverse both subnets. The solution would be to use a bridged adapter instead, so that all machines are on the same subnet. You should see your target's IP. Then select each IP and them to respective targets. Then simply start your ARP poisoning.

Hi, Being new to ettercap and mitm, I mitm OK using kali live USB but for some reason I can't wrap my head around, I can't using my kali installation as ettercap won't add any host to the hosts list.
Yet, it's the same network, and "arp -a" always returns 2 hosts. I have the exactly same issue like him. And I downloaded the 0. And I haven't find related hint in wiki page. Hi me too and i try apt-get purge ettercap and successfuly install it from source and again same problem here is the output: ettercap 0. As the koeppea said, you need to remove the installed binary version of ettercap and compile ettercap from Github source.
To do so:. I've created a screencast addressing this issue. I think when you follow this Howto, you have at least a way to continue. The issue in already fixed as demonstrated in the video.

Sign up. New issue. Jump to bottom. Copy link Quote reply. Scanning for merged targets 2 hosts This is due to a meanwhile known issue with a newer version of libpcap which is a dependency of Ettercap. The issue is already fixed, but not yet backported into Kali. For you it means that you need to remove the installed binary version of ettercap and compile ettercap from Github source. Checkout our Wiki to find hint how doing this.
In the meantime since you're the 3rd guy with the same issueI'll reach out to the Kali maintainer asking if the latest changes can be backported into the binary distribution version.
Hi koeppea, I have the exactly same issue like him. Let me do up a little screencast covering this topic. Ettercap Empty Host List This is already fixed in master.Welcome to LinuxQuestions. You are currently viewing LQ as a guest.

Join Date Nov Posts 4. I have installed kali recently, for me is a great tool to learn how networks works, thanks! But Im finding some problems using some tools. First one is ettercap: The tolls loads with no problems, I set it up following many tutorials. But when I try to do an arp poisonig and do a MITM atack to my laptop inside my lan, my laptop looses the hability to browse the internet, actually looses all conectivity.
The set up is: desktop computer with kali, laptop computer and the internet router. Posoning seems to be ok but for some reason the laptop as I said looses conectivity, looks like no packet forwarding is being done. Another interesting thing is that the scan for hosts tool also doesnt work, it makes a scan and cant find the laptop or the router.
Also all the plugins can be started but I have not been able see any results. I have already tried many "solutions" I found online, none of them gave me results. I unistalled the default ettercap instalation and did a full compilation from the latest ettercat version, it is also not working as expected. Can anyone give me a hint on what can be wrong?
I cant see any error messages in the console or in the logs. This time the posisoning is working, because the laptop does not looses conectivity. I can sniff all it trafic using wireshark for example. Also the sslstrip tool seems not be working Can anyone give me a hint on what can be wrong? Thanks in advance. Join Date Oct Posts I think something is wrong with it.
It seems to work when it wants to a very limited extent. Do bang your heat against the wall look for another tool that does what you want. Dont use wifi pumpkin though unless what you want is to reinstall kali linux two installs and both times it destroyed my wifi. If you need to use a script and it for evil twin try Airgeddon for mitm theres a bunch of good ones mitmap is ok to get started it automates everything.
If I'm guessing right from what you wrote it is working the bad news is this isnt a movie it's not going to work like you want it to. Take passwords Google search a password calculator fill in the info, at 8 or 10 charcters that's a long time with a very expensive rig and you still might not get it the word has to be in your wordlist or your out of luck.
If you have access to the network try wireshark sign on and start recording set your filter for post info if theres a password that's not in encrypted traffic and that's a long shot you'll see it. I hate to say it but your probably going to spend a long time getting nothing even if you do everything right.
Check out the book Learn Social Engineering that will get you started, the results come a bit faster. Thanks you for answer Robert. My intention is to learn about nwetworking from a deep point of view. I dont want to steal people's passwords. The tools provided by kali lets me see the insighs of networking in a way I can do it just reading a book. My post about teercap was because I tried to use it and It wasnt working, so I was thinking if I was doing something wrong.
Then acording to your answer, definitly ettercap is the problem and not me. I have succesfully done a MITM atack using other tools, I just wanted to know what is wrong with ettercap.

Today I retried it and found out that Ncurses does find hosts but much less reliable. In Ncurses there where either 0 hosts mostlyor if lucky 1 host was found. The GUI finds sometimes 0 sometimes 2 and sometimes 3 hosts :s.
Host scanning in general doesn't appear to be reliable why actually? Ah and btw I try everything through a wifi connection. Might the scan to fast to be reliable on wireless connections?
Yeah, I think the arp response wait is too short for WiFi. I've the same problem with -C interface, it usually doesn't find any hosts. But the others interfaces work well. AntonioCollarino are you scanning hosts using a wifi interface? Nuc1eoN I think we have finally fixed this long stading bug!
Please check again! That's funny. It appears that the performance of the ncurses interface has been fixed. Indeed, now it's the GTK interface that is inferior to the ncurses interface. But note, that this is no regression: It's just the ncurses interface which got improved now, while the GTK interface has the same performance as before Anyway I'll look more deeply at the code. Maybe it's related to scan speed? Actually with both interfaces it appears to be too fast, since I always get a different number of hosts after each scan.
Can you please try this branch? Hm, I'm sorry but it doesn't look like it fixes the issue for me. Also the scan bar is pretty stuttering and slows down the process.
Maybe just using a tiny progres "wheel" might be a better option like it's done in thunar for example. I'll investigate further tomorrow maybe.
Does it actually fix the problem for you or at least improve? Nuc1eoN You have to know how ettercap is doing the scan:. There is no state tracking as this is not feasible. So, if a ARP reply or a ICMPv6 neigh advertisement comes around during that time, it is automatically included into the results even though it wasn't expected by the scan.

But when I scan for hosts on the eth0 interface It looks like your eth0 connection on your Kali VM has its network adapter setup incorrectly and is actually using your host machine's network On your VMs, run ifconfig and check that eth0 is actually on your If it's not, you'll need to double check the eth0 connection setting within your VMs, and that the VMWare network settings for the VMs are correct.
