burpsuite issues over VNC connection

Alan Dec 01, 2019 12:16AM UTC

Hello! I've run into a peculiar issue and wondering if anyone else has overcome it - when running burpsuite over my VNC connection (my primary access method) the burpsuite windows show up as pink and do not display content. However, if I console directly in (using ESXi) or use over an xrdp connection (I installed to troubleshoot, but interacts more slowly over my apache guacamole client) it works just fine. Any ideas on how to adjust to work over VNC?

Distro: Debian 10
JRE: 11.0.5 from debian repo
burpsuite v2.1.04 (from kali rolling repo)
VNC server: tigervnc-standalone-server v1.9.0
VNC client: apache guacamole

PS - I normally get the "burp has not been fully tested on this platform and you may expereince problems" in my terminal, but it works just fine if not in a VNC session! strange.

Is it just Burp that is not displaying correct over your VNC connection?

Hi Ben,

Yes - it's the only GUI app that seems to have a problem currently.

Alan, have you tried any other VNC client/servers when you have been troubleshooting?
