As I know this far, I need to know which is the IP address of the google drive upload. But I can't find one. Is this correct way? Thank you.

  1. Determine the IP address of your machine
  2. In Wireshark, select Capture / options
  3. Select the interface that connect to the LAN
  4. Enter the following capture filter: host <your-ip-address>
  5. Start capturing
  6. Go to Google drive and upload a file

You should only see traffic to/from your computer. Now find the TCP traffic to/from Internet. You can confirm by right-clicking on one of the packets and select "Follow TCP Stream" In the analysis screen, you should see ""

Google drive is hosted in the Google CDN ( and you will get different IPs for depending on the geographical region you are in. You can obviously resolve to get the IP address for your region and then capture traffic to that IP address. However the whole traffic to the google servers is encrypted (https). You will be able to see that something is being transmitted to the google servers, but you won't see what is being uploaded. If you need that, please take a look at Fiddler (or similar tools).
