I was wondering how I would be able to proxy MetaSploit through BurpSuite.

I was to reverse engineer a packet being sent to my ChromeCast, but I have no way of viewing the packet.

    Would using Wireshark be an option? – Arminius May 21 '17 at 0:01
  • I just tried that, but I have to get familiar with BurpSuite for my ethical hacking course, but yes, WireShark did work. – Python May 21 '17 at 0:06
  • Bear in mind that Burp is mainly for web application security. It won't help you much with analyzing arbitrary protocols. – Arminius May 21 '17 at 0:16
  • But would it still work? – Python May 21 '17 at 0:27
  • I guess Burp would choke on the parts that aren't HTTP or protocols recognized by Burp. – Arminius May 21 '17 at 0:31

Use the PROXIES environment variable(while in msfconsole) : set Proxies HTTP:[burp_port]

Or run Metalsploit with proxychains(config at /etc/proxychains.conf) http://proxychains.sourceforge.net

Notice that using burp is not helpful to inspect protocols other than http.
