Hello all,

Setting the capture filter in wireshark and restarting the capture still shows other IP network traffic....what went south? Here is what I did: started WS went into capture -> Capture Filters -> Cliked New -> filtername = filter string = host then restarted capture but I still see all the other traffic being displayed; Does this mean that the capture only collects data in the log file for x.x.x.12 address but the display continues to show all other traffic or did I do something wrong.

You have only created a capture filter for later use. You must apply the filter in the capture options dialog.
