I'm trying to capture incoming and outgoing IP addresses from a PS4 (for a game glitch) however wireshark doesn't seem to be able to capture any of the traffic. I get the following error when I try to capture the bridge connection:

error I have ran it as administrator btw

I have the following interfaces:


The only one of them that has traffic and I can monitor is the loopback one but that seems to only be for the current PC and not have any PS4 traffic.

Here is the bridge connection I have setup:


Any way to see outgoing and incoming IP addresses for the PS4? Thank you!!

"Failed to set hardware filter to promiscuous mode" sounds as if it means that the device doesn't support promiscuous mode.

Try capturing using the Capture > Options menu item and unchecking the promiscuous mode check box for the interface before starting the capture.
