I've been using Wireshark for a long time with no problem, but can't get it to work right with this new server. I used to be able to see all my internal traffic. If I pinged eth0 or a TAP, I could see the ping. I can't anymore. The ping works, but Wireshark isn't capturing it. This is making troubleshooting other problems difficult. What am I doing wrong?

I'm using CentOS 5.8

By "internal traffic" do you mean that the machine has multiple virtual machines on it, and the "internal traffic" is traffic between virtual machines on the same host, or do you mean traffic from a given host or guest to the same host or guest?
