Node.net packet capturing Pi Zero Project. It’s very cool. Try it out.
A few commenters have mentioned that this might not work as intended, so have a read below. Thanks for schooling me people 🙂
This guide will show you how to create a small, packet capturing computer using a Raspberry Pi Zero combined with a passive lan tap. It’s meant to be used with power over ethernet compatible networking hardware, so you can power it directly through the ethernet cables, without any batteries or USB chargers.
You simply plug it in between two ethernet cables, and it automatically powers on and begins logging the traffic that passes through.
Thanks to Liz Kellog for the idea.
