I am sending packets using the UDP protocol and raw sockets. i want to manually build the ip header which I want to transmit over wlan0 and capture these packets using wireshark so that I can analyse the contents that I have received. But for some reason, I am not able to capture these packets using wireshark. Do you need to write an explicit receiver code on the client side to capture these packets or can can wireshark capture them automatically?

I am a noob at network programming and any help in this regard would be sincerely appreciated.
