Goodday, I want to capture packets with my fritzbox. But watching the fritzbox capture screen I really don't know what interface to choose. eth3, ifbO, 1.internetconnection, etc etc. Anyone here who can help me?

Thanks Kelly

I don't know the fritzbox, but I would make a small capture on each of them in turn while generating some traffic. That way you can determine which traffic is seen on each interface. Then pick the interface that shows the traffic as you would like to see in your capture file.

If you would specify the type number of the FritzBox that would probably help also.

Or it would be helpful, if you could tell us what you want to capture. Internal-Net or External.

@Christian_R , thanks for the reply. I want to capture traffic from and out of computer in my home net work. So I think that means external
