Capture File Location

asked 2019-01-20 20:10:06 +0000

I am somewhat new to WireShark

I would like to have a "Permanent" capture file location instead of having to navigate to it each time.

A file that would be overwritten each time, drive space is not an issue.

I am just not sure how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated

I'd do this by running dumpcap.exe instead of Wireshark (which uses dumpcap.exe to capture anyway). You can run it with the same parameter set each time, writing to the same file like this:

dumpcap -i 0 -w d:\temp\capture.pcapng

The "-i" parameter specifies the index of the capture interface. You can get a list with

dumpcap -D
