Hi.I need to see packets coming from OR going to ip using capture filter but src host capture filter not working for me! I write src host (My IP) and I capture traffic to or from my IP address but I want to capture only traffic from this IP.Also, is there any way to see the capture process, the number of captured packets, etc as in Tshark (linux terminal):

[]# tshark -i eth1 dst host or src host

Capturing on eth1

0.000000 -> SIP Status: 200 OK (1 bindings)

7.475218 -> SIP Status: 200 OK (1 bindings)

6 packets captured

Thanks in advance!

To limit captures for packets to or from a host use the capture filter host a.b.c.d.

I don't understand the second part of the question, are you talking about the Wireshark GUI?

Ok, thanks but I need to capture only traffic from my IP, and yes, I am talking about WS GUI (I see all traffic to and from my host in GUI using src host a.b.c.d and I need to see only traffic exiting from my host... Thanks again!

instead of src host x.x.x.xx please use src x.x.x.x

Both forms are working properly for me on PortableApps version 1.8.5.
