Hi Everyone! I am firwer123 and i just joined Wireshark Q&A!

Firstly, I hope some one could help me one this,

--Source--------Destination---Protocol----------------Length & Information--------------

192.XXX.1.XX---- 54589 > dhanalakshmi [ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=17520 Len=0 dhanalakshmi > 54589 [PSH, ACK] Seq=1 Ack=74 Win=65462 Len=13
and a few more similar ones..

192.XXX.1.XX is my local machine is that remote server

Above, is a TCP connection that I've filtered out of my network traffic and besides that this network activity log came from a program that would contact its server( whenever i open it..

But now, I wished to stop this program from contacting their server again.. Is there anyway i can stop it using Wireshark...or lets don't say stop it, is there anyway to exploit it?

Additional Information about that remote server (

  • Server IP:
  • Protocol: TCP
  • Source Port: Dhanalakshmi (34567)
  • Destination Port: 50949

Peoples please help me! I need your help!!

Your Sincerely, firwer123

Wireshark is not a firewall, so no there's no way it can stop it for you. Wireshark is a (rather passive) network sniffer, so cannot 'exploit' (whatever that means) this or any other TCP connection.
