Connecting OctoSniff To Game Consoles: Wireless Setup Guide

In this tutorial show you how to use OctoSniff if your game console is wired to router or connected to WiFi.

How to find your Console & Router IP's

PS4/PS5: Settings => Go to the Settings =>Network => View Connection Status option.
XBOX ONE: Profile & system => Settings => General => Network settings, => Advanced settings.
Take note of the following information your console displays "IP address(ipv4) = (Console IP) & Default gateway = (Router IP)".

Wireless tutorial:

Open up OctoSniff and select your Network Interface. Ie. your computers internet adapter either ethernet or WiFi in the top left corner.
Click "Setup ARP" (select your PC internet adapter if you have already) click "Next".
Router = you need to select your Default gateway (Router IP). Once selected click "Next". Once you click next wait for scanning to stop then continue.
Client devices = you need to select the IPV4 address of the device you want to pull IPS from (i.e. PlayStation, Xbox, Phone etc.) Once selected click "Save ARP Setting"
Click "Start ARP", then click "Start Sniff".
You should now start seeing IP Addresses appear! Once you have pulled all the ips in the session you are in you can click "Stop ARP"

To be noted
Make sure you've allowed the software through your PC firewall. if the initial scan doesn't find your device simply click scan again or enter it manually.
If for some reason, your Console did not appear - you can add it manually. This may take a couple of attempts, but it will work eventually! if your pc and console are both on Wi-Fi make sure they are both on 2.4G or both on 5G
This video only shows pulling for games that support decrypt, for games that don't support decrypt (i.e. Party Chat, COD, Destiny, RDR, Rainbow 6 Siege, Fortnite etc) >CLICK HERE<
Even though decryption is patched for GTA the ips for GTA V & RDR 2 do not require a filter and will still appear in the PS Tab for XBOX/PLAYSTATION.

Common errors or questions
Unable to decrypt error for PlayStation? Please read the Tips on this page >CLICK HERE< for more info.
If you are having disconnect issues, Lag or trouble pulling IP's its more than likely your router firewall is blocking the ARP Spoofing attack if this is the case. simply use the PC HotSpot method, or switch to one of recommended wired setups linked below, as they do not require a ARP Spoofing attack.

Below are the best recommended setups in order.
