Hi guys

I was trying to capture the DHCP packet on my Mininet experiment (uBuntu).

When I open wireshark (sudo wireshark), I was not able to find my interface (h1eth0, h2eth0).

                /      \
               /        \
         |switch1|   |switch2|
            /              \
           /h1eth0          \h2eth0
         |h1|              |h2|

Could someone help me to figure out?

You should probably address this through the Mininet support forum or IRC.

I do not think this problem relate to mininet. Because I can capture both switches` interface. I do not understand why wireshark excludes the hosts. Actually, it was fine last week.
