Hello.

I've launch wireshark from a remote shell like the explanation in https://ask.wireshark.org/questions/10941/how-do-you-launch-wireshark-from-a-remote-shell, but I need to launch it with interfaces of two or more shells of different virtualized nodes running over linux.

Somebody that knows how to do it?

I will explain it better. I have a virtual network running over linux with mininet. I open the shells of the network nodes through mininet. When the shells appears, I run the commands like explain here: https://ask.wireshark.org/questions/10941/how-do-you-launch-wireshark-from-a-remote-shell; but two differents wireshark windows appear, each of one with the interfaces of the corresponding node.

So, I need that the interfaces of all my nodes appear in the same wireshark window.

Please, your help.

Thanks.

You can use more than one -i statements on the commandline.

Example:

wireshark -i eth0 -i eth1 -i eth2 -n ....

Well, the problem is that I have one shell for every router. For example, if I have routers R1 and R2 and if I run the command wireshark -i eth0 -i eth1 in the R1 shell and wireshark -i eth0 -i eth1 in the R2 shell, Wireshark opens two differents windows, each of one with the interfaces of only one router.

I don't know if I'm explaining well. Do you get my problem?

Thanks.

Well, let's see: Do you have 3 virtual systems (router) with Mininet that you have to telnet/ssh into and then capture on the virtual interfaces within those virtual systems?

Yes, this is my testing environment.

O.K. that's not easy. See my answer to a similar question.

Ehh, no, that's not what he's doing.

He's using the remote shell to run Wireshark GUI at the router. He just exports the DISPLAY towards his management station. These multiple Wireshark GUI processes (one on each router) give multiple windows on his management station. This he would like to aggregate into one.
