Sniffer on OSX - revisited

It looks like the last discussion of Sniffer on Devzone was 2-3 yrs ago.

I’ve ordered the nRF Dongle and will download the Windows-based nRF Sniffer app.

i can run this with WireShark on a Windows VM on my Mac, though I would like a Mac OSX option.

- Any news on that front?

- Any way the Bluetooth hardware built into the MacBook could serve a Mac Sniffer app?

  • OK.  I'll try that tomorrow (Tuesday US Central time) with:
    Python 2.7.14
    pyserial (3.2.1)
    - SEGGER J-Link Commander V6.16c (Compiled Jun 16 2017 18:19:39)
       DLL version V6.16c, compiled Jun 16 2017 18:19:20
    - WireShark Mac OS 
    Version 2.4.5

    In separate sessions, I'll use each device (nRF dongle-PCA10031 and DK-PCA10040) and flash them using the appropriate parameters in JLINKEXE to "erase..." as in the Sniffer 2.1 User Guide.

    Then in OSX Terminal, I'll run "screen <port> 460800" 
    and report the results.

    Have I got it?
