I'm using this command to see DNS requests:

tshark -pni fxp0 -f 'dst port 53' -T fields -e

And the output looks like this:

I don't understand where those numbers come from (1, 5, 6). And how to suppress those?

Those numbers are the packet counts.

Which version of Wireshark are you using? Because this was fixed with Guy's r51227 (or r51227) commit on August 9, 2013. It doesn't appear that that fix was backported to the 1.10 trunk, so you would need to either:

  • Use a development version of Wireshark released after that date, such as 1.11.2 released on November 18, 2013 (which is incorrectly indicated as being the 1.11.0 release, but 1.11.0 was released on October 15, 2013. Incidentally, 1.11.1 released on November 15, 2013 is also incorrectly indicated as 1.11.0)
  • Download and run a recent automated build.
  • Download the Wireshark source code and build your own version with the fix. See
  • Submit a bug report asking for this fix to be backported to the 1.10 branch (if that's what you're running and want to continue to run it) and then wait for the next 1.10 release with the fix.

Thanks for your reply! I'm using wireshark 1.10.5. Looks like I have to wait until 1.11 version will be available on FreeBSD ports.
