I am having trouble getting started on my packet capture. When I go to Capture->Interfaces I get a message saying "There are no interfaces on which a capture can be done." I am using Mac OS 10.6.3 and have an en1 interface. When I went to Edit-> Preferences-> Capture I typed in en1 in the "Default interface" box and hit OK. I continue to get the same message telling me "there are no interfaces on which a capture can be done."
