Good evening,

We are encountering a problem when sniffing network traffic on a PC Win 7 (64 bit). The problem is that we cannot see in the main area any packet when the filter is http.request.method==GET.

Instead we are able to see packets, using a MAC device and sniffing the same network traffic.

We are encountering the problem both in wifi and ethernet.

Could you please help us?

Thank you,

Can you share the capture in a publicly accessible spot, e.g. CloudShark, Google Drive, DropBox etc. and edit your question to add a link to the capture?

here you can find a capture taken from

You can see that no packet is visible if you set the "http.request.method==GET" filter.

You appear to have only captured inbound traffic, i.e. the HTTP responses, so there are no HTTP requests that have the GET method.

Did you apply a capture filter when making the capture?

If not, you may have software installed on your PC that prevents capturing of outbound traffic, e.g. VPN software, Endpoint protection etc. This is a quite frequent on windows, there are many questions on this site about the issue.
