The ip-address of a pcap file “question”

asked 2018-05-09 18:45:43 +0000

Hi everyone,

I'm an beginning IT student with zero wireshark knowledge. The objective is to find "interesting" activities in a pcap file we've received from school. First of all I need to find out what the IP-address is of the person who owned the pcap file.

I've already found multiple addresses and a few that show up a lot (one of those are probably the IP-address I'm looking for). Any Idea how I can find that.

What do you mean by "the IP-address ... of the person who owned the pcap file"? Do you mean "the IP address of the machine on which the capture was done"?

Yes that’s right! I’m looking for the ip address of the person who did the capturing!
