Installation (Please Read):
  • Please note ettercap 0.6.x is deprecated; please upgrade to 0.7.
  • Binaries are not officially provided or supported - you have to compile it yourself (which can be tricky under Windows) or find a third-party binary provider. The developers are unlikely to be swayed on this.
  • Before installation, please ensure you have the correct versions of the above listed libraries. For the best experience you should have them all. Out-of-date or missing libraries are the most common reason for failure.
  • You need to read the documentation in the tgz before and after running ./configure; make; make install.
  • The command-line switches and the etter.conf have changed from 0.6.x to 0.7. You should read and edit the etter.conf to suit.
  • For HTTPS support you need to uncomment the right 'redir' command in etter.conf.
  • In short, read the docs, read the man pages, read the FAQ, read the forums, and then ask questions. ;)
Running Ettercap:
  • You need to select a user interface (no default) using -T for Text only, -C for the Ncurses based GUI, or -G for the nice GTK2 interface (thanks Daten...).
