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?

  • I just tried that, but I have to get familiar with BurpSuite for my ethical hacking course, but yes, WireShark did work.

  • Bear in mind that Burp is mainly for web application security. It won't help you much with analyzing arbitrary protocols.

  • But would it still work?

  • I guess Burp would choke on the parts that aren't HTTP or protocols recognized by Burp.

Use the PROXIES environment variable (while in msfconsole) :


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.
