I am using Sun Virtual Box with Win7 64 bit as the host and an MSDOS guest and want to sniff the traffic using a Packet Driver on MSDOS. Wireshark does not capture the data. Microsoft VPC works as expected with Wireshark capturing the traffic.

Hmmmm....are you using VirtualBox's "bridged networking" mode? If so, it's bypassing the host OS network stack entirely...

Taking a look at the VirtualBox networking documentation (, it looks like the "host-only" mode might also create some problems for packet captures.

Create Host-Only Adapter and bridge with your LAN Adapter. run wireshark on LAN Adapter, It will do the work
