Foreword: I am woefully inexperienced with this. As in, this is literally my first time encountering something like this. Please bear with me.
The situation is as follows. We (as in, my company) are developing an application that will utilize the Ricoh Theta S camera and its API. The camera is connected via its hotspot to a phone, and it supports only that one connection. It communicates via HTTP on the IP address
80. Content type is
However, the settings we try to apply seem to be buggy and they're not exactly working as expected, so we'd like to use one laptop to sniff the communication between the camera and the phone application, and dump the JSON payloads associated with the packets.
I have installed Kali Linux as it comes with various useful tools, primarily Wireshark, out of the box. I already tried using
airmon-ng start wlan0 and then capturing on
wlan0mon in monitor mode. While I was able to find and filter traffic on the SSID of the camera's hotspot, I couldn't locate any JSON in that communication.
I have the wpk2 password used to connect to the hotspot. I tried following this article, as well, but I'm still getting misc. information instead of "real" traffic.
Is it possible to monitor this traffic as a 3rd party and save the JSON payloads attached to it? I can't directly intercept this, again, as the camera needs a 1:1 connection (i.e., can be connected to only one host at a time).
Thank you all in advance!
