asked 2018-08-06 16:18:02 +0000

dear friends,

i want to use wireshark to catch bad people coming into my room and troll. o haxball is a web based gaming site where you open a room and basically you are the host and people join into your room. I opened wireshark and try not to open any other internet related program however there are so much data going on. i want to filtre somehow only to catch people joining in my room and their ips. so i will know who is who (they always change nickname and continously trolling) i just want to know my enemies before they understand it. so what filtres should i use and where shuld i look for foreing ips? source section? help me out guys.

If you're not physically the running server, then it's unlikely that your connection to it (which is what Wireshark is showing you) will be able to provide the info you're looking for.

you <-----> server <-----> troll

As you can see from the highly detailed diagram above, Wireshark can only see the traffic between your PC and the server, the traffic and IP of the troll isn't available to you. Many online games have "admin" functions that allow the game "host" to see connections, but I don't know if "haxball" does have that capability.
