Hello everybody and happy holidays if it is indeed that time of year for you. I was trying edit the config files for both ettercap and also SET (social engineering toolkit) and i was using a sudo nano /etc/ and so on with negative results.What i mean is the command was wrong because the file was empty.

Could someone please point me in the right direction t I looked around here and obviously could have missed the answer i was looking for but i don't think so.

Hi trey,

That is 101 Linux you asking us. You can't edit folders only files. Learn how to find files, try commands find and whereis etc ..

Have fun ;)

Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

usually you can find config file for almost every software looking in its man page.
Second step is googleing around, and the third is asking here ;)

Have fun!

If you want to see ettercap file run in terminal:

less cd /etc/ettercap/etter.conf

maybe you need to add sudo

If you want to change it run nano cd /etc/ettercap/etter.conf or what ever editor you prefer.
Just a food for thought, do not change things you are not 100% sure about.

Good luck
