I am very new to Linux. Working with a machine that is unable to connect to the internet, due to the environment that it is in. Please could someone give me a way of installing. I have tried packaged installs (RPM) that didn't work, i am happy with terminal, however i would need guidance. Links to the software would be great too as i seem to not find the right ones. The machine its running on is a normal X86_64 machine.

You should be able to just yum install wireshark*.rpm once you have the RPMs.

Looks like you could get the latest RHEL/CentOS Wireshark RPMs here. You'll want both the wireshark and wireshark-gnome packages.

Edit: As @Jaap noted, there will probably be dependencies (more RPMs that you'll need to install). yum should tell you which dependencies you're missing; then it just becomes lather-rinse-repeat until you get all the appropriate RPMs and the installation succeeds.

A better way may be to get a RHEL DVD, put it in the computer, and install from that. You'd have to look at the repolist (yum repolist all) and then run yum with all repos except the DVD disabled (something like yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c7-media install wireshark-gnome) where "c7-media" is the name of the DVD repo (that's the name on CentOS 7).

I doubt this covers all dependancies? Or should these already be available through the base install?

Good Morning, i keep getting a Redhat subscription management issue. should this matter? Also everytime i install the dependancies they require more and more. At which point will this end as currently i am with about 15 different rpm's and then if i run those they require more.

Starting to drive me a little insane

Search the RH forums, etc. This is not uncommon.
