I am trying to isolate the IP of a user who connects to my VM through Teamviewer, but can't tell which IP is the connection through TeamViewer. What do I need to look for and what will tell me which connection is the one I'm looking for. I'm somewhat of a newbie with this program, and any and all help is appreciated. PS- capturing from VMWare Network Adapter VMNet8. My VM is a VirtualBox machine running Win10. Thanks!

TeamViewer needs to be able to traverse NATs and firewalls, so the application establishes, in both the "server" and "client" modes, a session to TeamViewer's servers on public IP addresses, and the TeamViewer's servers create tunnels between them (forward packets between the two sessions).

So searching for IP addresses from inside your company is useless as there is never a direct connection - unlike, e.g., in case of Remote Desktop or VNC.
