Please try this:

tshark -r input.cap -R http.request -T fields -e http.user_agent

and with a filter on HTTP/1.1

tshark.exe -r http_sample.cap -R 'http.request.version eq HTTP/1.1' -T fields -e http.user_agent

HINT: String quoting may be difficult in a Windows DOS box due to the slash ('/')! The DOS shell tries to interpret this as the start of a parameter.

Hmm...i get only empty list. Here is something else. When i select "GET / HTTP/1.1" within HTTP protocol, and apply filter, i get the list i want. Or at least i think it is complete list.

I'm sorry, there was a typo in my answer. user-agent (wrong) instead of user_agent (correct)! Please try again.
