hi, I am trying to capture the data on a port-channel connected to a wireless controller so I can see what traffic is going to and from the wireless controller from the access point and wifi client.

I am not see this traffic and only seeing some of the other traffic, for instance, I see the RDP replies\ack but not the data.

Any help would be great. I am running wireshark on a windows machine.

Can you elaborate on your capture setup? Are you using port mirroring, a tap, what is the line speed of the port-channel and of your capturing card, ...

Hi, I am spanning an 8-port port channel but I resolved the issue The issues is with the MacAfee HIPS services, once that was stopped the traffic was seen correctly.

Thanks for your response.

Glad to hear that, however even if it is just 8×FE, you'd need to capture 1.6 Gbit/s at peak, so it won't fit to a single SPAN port even if it would be a GE one. Leaving alone 8×GE where you'd need to deal with 16 Gbit/s at peak which no PC is likely to manage regardless what network card you'd plug in.
