I need to install a Windows program in Wine and I would like to analyze how reliable it is, that is, if it does not generate any connection that can transfer my information without realizing it.

This program is a software of notes and although I have paid the license and I keep in contact with the developer (recently I have communicated a bug), I would like to make sure that it is totally reliable as far as it can be detected.

How can this be done?

My operating system is Ubuntu.

    tcpdump to track every packet on your system but filter its port only? You can find its sockets using netstate – 炸鱼薯条德里克 Jan 11 at 12:42

Run tcpdump in the one console:

tpcdump -i interface_name -n -s 0 -w /tmp/capture.cap

Install the program in wine

Go back to the tcpdump terminal and interrupt it with CTRL + C; after that analyze the traffic dumped by the tool; you have two ways:

  • With tcpdump -r /tmp/capture.cap
  • With a more graphical or user friendly tool such as wireshark.
