Revision history [back]

same as another commented... i know this is way late but might help someone else. I too struggled with the gui interface. i entered info, and the 'save parameters on capture start' check was ticked. afterwards i could never get back to that window to alter the settings

those settings are stored in help > about > folders > personal configuration

for me it was /home/username/.config/wireshark

its just a text file. i opened it up and stripped out prior settings like the hostname, username and interface name. closed and reopened wireshark, then tried to ssh remote capture and was greeted with the gui dialog to change settings again.

hope that helps
