Wiretap is comprised of a number of Python scripts. Thus, you'll need Python installed on your system in order to use Wiretap. You can browse the list of available Python downloads.
You'll also need some basic network utilities, such as
Consult your system documentation for information on installing and
configuring these tools.
You'll first need to extract the files from the distribution archive.
You'll probably want to put all of the files in the distribution off of its
own subdirectory (e.g.
/usr/local/wiretap). This will keep
everything nice and neat.
In order for Wiretap to function correctly, you'll need to set the
WIRETAP environmental variable to the Wiretap directory (the
directory into which you extracted the distribution). For example, if you
extracted the distribution into
/usr/local/wiretap, you'd use:
C shell syntax: % setenv WIRETAP /usr/local/wiretap Bourne shell syntax: % set WIRETAP=/usr/local/wiretap; export WIRETAP
Consult the Configuration section of the Manual.
