I have a Kali Linux instance in AWS. I login via SSH using a key-pair file with ec2-user. I've configured VNC server for GUI access over an SSH tunnel and I can connect as documented here: https://www.hack4charity.org/2017/09...m-window-host/

However, whenever I try to run Wireshark, I'm presented with a box "Authentication is required to run /usr/bin/wireshark" as root. I have 2 options

Debian (ec2-user)

Debian doesn't have a password associated as AWS uses a key-pair, so I can't use i. I've set the Kali password, but that doesn't load WireShark. I do not receive any authentication or other errors. I suspect that the Kali user doesn't have sufficient permissions, but I'm not sure.

What do I need to do?
