It has been awhile since I've used Wireshark but I am trying to use to see some HTTP requests that are not visible in tools like the browser Live HTTP Headers. The system I am on is Windows Server 2016 on the AWS.

I've started Wireshark, and I think I selected the interface and the capture seems to be running but Wireshark is only showing No., Time, and Length:

link text

How can I get Wireshark to include the Source, Detniation, etc. and to format the information in the lower pane so it has the request URL, etc.?

Thanks, Jim

Hi - Ahh. I just found this other thread:

You can delete your current preferences by opening the "About Wireshark" menu item (under Help on Win/Linux/*ux, or uder "Wireshark" on MacOS). Then go to the "Folder" tab and double-click on the entry that says "Personal Configuration". Once that folder is open, close Wireshark first and then delete all the files in the personal configuration folder (you can leave the plugins and profiles folders if you like).

Now reopen Wireshark and load the file again, the columns should now be populated...
