Hi, I am using Wireshark 1.8.6 under Virtual machine with Win XP for remote capturing and there is no problems. But when I've tried to do this under host Debian (Wheezy) operating system with the Wireshark 1.8.2 there is no Remote Interfaces tab at all.

Remote capturing like this is a feature of WinPcap (which is what Wireshark uses to capture on Windows). libpcap (which Wireshark uses to capture on non-Windows systems) does not support remote capturing at the moment (AFAIK).
See also the CaptureSetup page for remote capturing.

See the following bug
