How to track packets from a certain ip?

asked 2019-06-25 05:18:19 +0000

A group of my friends are playing an online game and we want to know when we are getting matched with each other without having to load into the game first. I have the ip of the other teams host and was looking for info on how to setup wireshark to let me know when his ip is sending packets to mine?? Any suggestions?

So I would type that in with my ip being destination and his IP being source?

you should have || OR instead of &&, when your IP is either the source or the destination of the packet, for a display filter, host || host for the capture filter, may work better in order to have a capture of all packet going/coming from/to that IP address(es)
