Hello! I need capture traffic from 1500 hosts. I write this rule "host X.X.X.X or host X.X.X.X....... e.g.". When I try run capture with this rule I see "Error". I know that this rule is correct, because with lower count of hosts this rule accepted Wireshark and programm properly done. Sometimes big rules correct run/done. With tshark result the same like Wireshark.

What can I do for correct working this rule? I want capture traffic with Wireshark and Tshark

"Error", but nothing else? Does Wireshark or TShark say what type of error it was?

There was something else. Like "Coudn't find interface..." and some text in bad codepage. But early I wrote tshark -i 6 -b duration:14400 -B 50 -w D:\test.pcap "host 1.2.3.4 or host 2.3.4.5. or... e.g" and this version of rule I have this a problem. Now I writing with -f key tshark -i 6 -b duration:14400 -B 50 -w D:\test.pcap -f "host 1.2.3.4 or host 2.3.4.5. or... e.g" and this problem gone out. If this problem repeat with this key I will write here again. Thank you for your answers!
