How about just a screenshot, rather than a movie, so we don't have to pause the movie to see what's happening?

TZ is Asia/Shanghai

timestamp is 1671250750 time should be 2022-12-17 12:19:10 not 2022-12-17 04:19:10

Wireshark looks for the TZ environment variable to use as a timezone, this will overrule the system setting. Do you by any chance have a TZ variable on your system?

Also: if the TZ is set to a value that is not understood or invalid, the system will treat this as it was set to UTC.

TIL!

Hmmm... I would expected it to default back to the timezone from the system settings. Good to know, thanks!
