Hi Dave, Are you trying to see the traffic between your computer in the UK and the leased computer in the USA? If so, and assuming you only want to see that traffic, you can run Wireshark so it only records that traffic.

Launch Wireshark on the leased server. In the middle of the screen it says "Capture...using this filer:". Get the IP address from your local computer, and enter "host" or whatever your actual IP address is.

Then, when you start the capture, Wireshark will only show the traffic between your computer and the server.

Alternatively, you can install and run Wireshark on your computer in the UK, for the host filter use the IP for the remote server, and do the same thing. Depending on what you are trying to do you might want one, or the other, or both.

FYI - you can also use the FQDN instead of the IP address. For instance, "host" instead of "host".
