I what to connect with wireshark remote interface to an other computer. On the computer runs pcap. But it don't work. Do someone know the reason and a solution?

Errormessage:

I get the message: "Can't get list of interfaces: Loggin failt. Unknown user or password" I what to connect with wireshark remote interface to an other computer. On the computer runs pcap. But it don't work. Do someone know the reason and a solution?

Errormessage:

I get the message: "Can't get list of interfaces: Login fault. Unknown user or password"

I have tried the following:

  • I have checked Password and User, they were valid and the user is a domain user with admin rights.
  • I have tried yo make a remote interface to the local machine where wireshark is running and this works.
  • I used the Port: 2002 and there is no virusscanner.

How can I check that I can use the Port: 2002 ?

Is there an other common port like 2002 ?

Where is the reason for the error message ?

I'd check Password and User, they where valid and the user is a domain user with admin rights.

rpcapd does not support domain authentication. Please use a local user account with admin privileges.
