To get started using Netrounds for traffic analysis (RPCAP), please follow these simple steps.
1. Sign up for Netrounds
Sign up for a trial account at https://app.netrounds.com/system/signup/ completely free of charge. The trial account gives you access to five software Test Agents (with Medium license), which among other things can be activated as remote traffic capture devices.
2. Download a Netrounds Test Agent
The next step is to download, install, and configure a Netrounds Test Agent.
- In the Test Agents view in the Netrounds user interface, click the Download button.
- Download the desired type of Test Agent. Follow the on-screen links for installation instructions, or refer to the links below.
By default, once connected and powered up, all Test Agents will communicate directly with the cloud server through an encrypted connection (to login.netrounds.com using TCP port 443).
3. Perform your first remote packet capture
Once the Test Agent has connected to your cloud account, it will show up in the Test Agents view. Read more here on how to perform your first remote packet capture.
