Hi ! I have a real huge problem, when I am connected through the wireless of my university, I can just see adresses like this :

1823731 14856.287768 fe80::74b6:2d79:4343:41e1 ff02::c SSDP 208 M-SEARCH * HTTP/1.1

Here is a picture to understand more :

How Can I solve this problem ? Because I want to see the IP ADDRESS connected in the same wireless. Thank you !

Looks like you have an IPv6 address and that's what all the traffic is running over. Those long strings in the source and destination columns like fe80::74b6:2d79:4343:41e1 and ff02::c are really the IP addresses!

Here is, aptly named, everything you need to know about IPv6

Is it possible that you only have an IPv6 address on the 'en1' interface? In the terminal, you can check by running ifconfig en1

Thank you for your answer, but still I can not see the http addresses, the cookie.... After running the command in the terminal I receive this.

en1: flags=8863 <up,broadcast,smart,running,simplex,multicast> mtu 1500 ether c2:bc:c5:e1:d3:72 inet6 fe80::cabc:c8ff:fee2:d377%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5 inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast media: autoselect status: active

Any Idea ?
