We surveyed several tools function by our client request. Wireshark is one of them. We must report surveyed result to our client.

Is it possible to use Wireshark screen shot for surveyed result report document? Or violate with license agreement(GPLv2)?

There is no problem in using the generated output (visual or otherwise) from a GPL'ed program(*), only the code itself is covered. So go ahead adding it into your report.

(*) That would be an very complicating issue with a compiler or web server for instance. Output could be protected otherwise though, for instance creating an animation with Blender is copyright protected.
