[email protected]:~$

But when i start wireshark using

[email protected]:~$ wireshark &

A wireshark network analyser window opens , but it is not showing any interfaces to capture the traffic.

I am not running this on my local machine. This is GENI resources which i can access through ssh.

I want to capture the network traffic in eth4 . Can anyone help me on this ?

Thanks Navaz
