Dear Community I am looking for a suitable filter that records the printing process without storing the contents of the PDF file to be printed. Is this possible? I am having a print problem with large PDF files and trying to find out with Wireshark.

I'm grateful for all the helpful tips and information.

Thanks Dirk

Try to use packet slicing option:

Choose a size (snaplen) in Bytes to capture only headers data therefore a payload will not be recorded. Be careful because SMB headers (SMB is often used for network printing) might be quite large.
