Wireshark 3.4.8 - Cannot get DNS name resolution to work


I have a DNS server (MaraDNS) hosted on one of my machines, on

Wireshark is running on a Windows machine. That Windows machine has two network adapter, on different networks (192.168.0 and 192.168.1), and networking on one adapter is configured to point to 192.168.103 as DNS (the other one is left blank/default). nslookup works when I run it on this Windows machine.

I know that Wireshark is supposed to be able to do DNS name resolution, and I have set various options under Preferences => Name Resolution, but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

Actually, today, while I trying different settings, Wireshark did show the hostnames, but then when I started a new capture, the hostnames no longer were shown, and I haven't been able to get them to appear anymore.

Thanks, Jim
