Packetbeat fails to start


(Shaun Wells) #1

Hi - Wondering what permissions are required to sniff the local network adapter. I work in an environment where access is restricted on Linux servers - I do not have Sudo rights.

I get the following error:

CRIT Initializing sniffer failed: Error creating sniffer: any: You don't have permission to capture on that device (socket: Operation not permitted)

Wondering exactly what permissions I need to start the service.

Thanks,
Shaun.
