Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] Wireshark V1.2.0 & GeoIP
Keith,

I haven't used GeoIP myself, but I know from the changes that it will create a temporary file to load into your browser. I haven't checked where it will create the file on Winwods, but it does it in /tmp on linux. Maybe the permissions of the directory that WS uses are restricted (or maybe WS tries to a directory that does not exist on your system).

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
     Sake

JavaScript is enabled. When I click the Map button, it doesn't even make
any
attempt to load the browser.

I have also tried it with IE8 & JavaScript enabled, but that is no better

either.

Hi Keith,

Perhaps this is the problem:
the browser must have javascript enabled.

I don't have any problems using GeoIp.
I use Mozilla Firefox 3.0.11 as default browser.

I am trying to get this new GeoIP feature working in Wireshark V1.2.0

running
on Windows XP Pro. I have tried following the video by Laura Chappell
and
the article on the Wiki, but can't get the map to display.

I have downloaded the three GeoLite databases in compressed gz format
and
extracted them all to the same folder under My Documents. Then in
Wireshark
Preferences under Name Resolution I have set the GeoIP Database
Directories
dialog to contain one entry pointing to this folder where the databases
are
extracted to:-

C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\GeoIP

I then clicked OK and restarted Wireshark.

When I take a trace and then look in Endpoints, under the IP4 tab, I can
see the Country, City, AS Number, Longitude & Latitude columns all
populated.

However, if I click the map button (with an internet connection) nothing
happens.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Keith French.
