Hello everyone, I am using Wireshark v3.4.0 and cannot see a SSH Remote Capture option in my interface list, can you please advise what I need to enable for this option to appear?, thank you.

What operating system is this on?

Do you see, for example, ciscodump or randpktdump in the interface list?

Hello Guy, Not at all; just the Ethernet / Wi-Fi Interfaces. It appears that I need to install sshdump but cannot find it anywhere. I am running Wireshark on Windows 10 Pro x64, thank you.

sshdump is an extcap interface that must be selected during the install. When the "Choose Components" dialog is displayed, expand the "Tools" item, scroll down a bit and check the "Sshdump and Ciscodump" option.
