Hello wireshark community
With version 1.6 I can choose/select a capture-filter in the capture-options dialog menue. In version 1.8 this option has disappeared in the capture-options dialog menue. How to select a capture-filter in version 1.8 by GUI? Perhaps only now with the -f parameter when I start wireshark?
I am not a very expirienced user of wireshark yet, but very impressed. Looked and searched in the documentation for my question but didn't find hints for a solution.
Thank you for your time and for your helpful answers.
Wireshark 1.8 now allows capturing on multiple interfaces, and each interface can have its own capture filter, so the capture filter input field has been moved to the interface settings.
From the Capture Options dialog, double-click on the interface for which you want to set the capture filter. This will take you to the "Edit Interface Settings" dialog, and you will see the capture filter input field.
Note that the capture filter for each interface is actually shown in the Capture Options dialog, but it's to the far right and you have to scroll the display to make it visible.
