I am trying to run tshark on mutliple USB interfaces using the below command. Note that, in both HUBs multiple USB devices are connected. Also, when I am running on both interfaces separately, it runs perfectly.

tshark.exe -i 5 -i 6

Can anyone please help me on this.

Thanks in advance!!

For some reason, dumpcap (which is what tshark is running to capture the traffic) thinks it's reading something from a pipe.

This appears to be a bug. Please file a bug about this at the Wireshark Bugzilla.
