No ipv4 addresses in statistics

asked 2022-11-05 22:39:59 +0000

I am trying to figure out why ipv4 addresses will not show up in regular display or in statistics. When I launch WS I get the error "Error loading table 'DNS Servers': addr_resolve_dns_servers:2: expecting field tcp_port".

Could this be my problem? Pretty much a noob here.

This has been fixed in 8771: addr_resolv: define default port values for DNS resolution UAT and 8772.
If you would like to test, there are development builds at

Or you can manually fix using steps in this question: Error loading table 'DNS Servers' ?

That should not prevent you from seeing IP address. Are you working from a capture file or trying to capture traffic?

Thanks, I will try. I am capturing traffic.

There are sample captures on the Wireshark Wiki.
You might start with those to separate this from being a capture issue vs a display problem.

I was able to modify the file. The error is gone but I'm still not seeing the IPs capturing traffic? I tried a sample capture as you suggested and the IPs were there in "Statistics".

Is it not capturing any traffic or is it possible you're on a ipv6 network (so no ipv4 traffic)?
