See PPP capture setup for some (techy, maybe not up to date) info.

I'd have verify this, but ISTR that you might be better off using Microsoft Netmon to capture PPP data and then use Wireshark to dissect the captured data.

On Windows, WinPCap (the capture mechanism used by Wireshark) can't capture on PPP interfaces, but Network Monitor from Microsoft can. Wireshark can open the Network Monitor captures.
