Troubleshooting with Wireshark [Riverbed lab kit]

A while ago I attended a Wireshark webinar from Riverbed in which they presented the tool, some beginner and intermediate users troubleshooting scenarios and some lab kit.

Now I got an e-mail that they made it available for download at

Part of this Lab Kit were available in the Virtual World Tour 2014 webinar on Troubleshooting with Wireshark, held by Laura Chappell and Gerald Combs.

Kit is a free collection of Wireshark training, trace files and tips and tricks for troubleshooting your network. This lab kit contains the following:

  • Nine Network Analysis Training videos
  • Troubleshooting Checklist
  • Sample Network Analysis Report
  • Practice Trace Files
  • Laura’s Wireshark Troubleshooting Profile
  • Chapter Excerpts from Laura Chappell’s new book “Troubleshooting with Wireshark Locate the Source of Performance Problems”

  • If you are interested in troubleshooting with Wireshark, I think this would be a nice place to start. The presentation page of Wireshark Virtual Tour looks a little bit like comics marketing style, but the materials are pretty good.

    How to Give a Webinar (and Not Look Like an Idiot)


    Someone taps you on the shoulder and says, “We scheduled a Webinar to show off the important technology the company has developed. And since you know it better than anyone else, we decided that you are the one who should be in front of the camera.”

    Lucky you.

    Many people would rather visit the dentist or pay taxes than speak publicly. They might even prefer to pay the dentist’s taxes than stand up in front of a crowd. Perhaps this fear of public embarrassment is why so many business professionals are nervous about hosting a Webinar.
