Client-server communication on localhost not showing up

Hello, I'm trying to capture packets from a client-server communication on localhost (on the same computer). None of the network interfaces show this. When I connect the client to a remote server though, Wireshark is able to capture the transmitted packets.

How can I visualise the packets exchanged between client and server on the same host? While I can run each on a different computer, for debugging purposes it's easier to test both locally.

Any help welcome.

Regards, Ed
