I have gone through these steps to set up a private Burp Collaborator a few times and just find the instructions to be a bit disjointed. In addition, it seems like everyone asks a question related to this on the forums the question gets shuffled over to email so you never get the answer.

All I’m doing in this post is trying to organize the instructions in order of how you might go about implementing one and adding a few notes for doing this on an AWS EC2 Ubuntu instance — but the process is the same regardless of where you run it. Also, I resolve a few issues and show you how to use what appears to be an undocumented feature. At least I couldn’t find it.
