The following will explain capturing using pipes a bit. Before pipes, Wireshark could read the captured packets to display either from a file (which had been previously created) or for a network interface (in real time). Since pipes are supported, Wireshark can also read captured packets from another application in real time. This is useful if you want to watch a network in real time, and Wireshark cannot capture from that network, e.g. because it is not a network type supported by the version of libpcap/WinPcap on your machine, or because you want to capture traffic on an interface on another machine and your version of libpcap/WinPcap doesn't support remote capturing from that machine. There are some limitations that you should be aware of: CaptureSetup/Pipes
Named Pipes A named pipe is a named, one-way or duplex pipe for communication between the pipe server and one or more pipe clients. All instances of a named pipe share the same pipe name, but each instance has its own buffers and handles, and provides a separate conduit for client/server communication. The use of instances enables multiple pipe clients to use the same named pipe simultaneously. Any process can access named pipes, subject to security checks, making named pipes an easy form of communication between related or unrelated processes. Named pipes can be used to provide communication between processes on the same computer or between processes on different computers across a network. If the server service is running, all named pipes are accessible remotely.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) connects more than computers and peripherals. It has the power to connect you with a whole new world of PC experiences. USB is your instant connection to the fun of digital photography or the limitless creative possibilities of digital imaging. You can use USB to connect with other people through the power of PC-telephony and video conferencing. Once you've tried USB, we think you'll grow quite attached to it! USB oficial
Plugin module dissctor fails assertion
usb 1 - 10 of 408 matches [Wireshark-dev] USB 2007/04/03 I would like to start playing with the USB dissector in Wireshark. My USB capture hardware will give me complete USB packets, i.e. all of the data on the wire between the SOP and EOP markers. However, I'm not clear on how this fits into the DLT_USB or DLT_USB_LINUX capture types. It seems -- Jim Paris

CaptureSetup/USB This page is about capturing raw USB traffic, e.g. the packets a USB mouse will generate on the Universal Serial Bus. Table of contents USB attached network interfaces A special case are network interfaces connected to a host computer through an USB cable. The operating system "converts" the raw USB packets into the network traffic (e.g.

Tools This is a place for scripts and tools related to Wireshark / TShark that users may like to share, and for links to related NetworkTroubleshooting tools. Some command line tools are shipped together with Wireshark. These tools are useful to work with capture files. The following tools can process the libpcap-format files that Wireshark and TShark produce or can perform network traffic capture and analysis functions complementary to those performed by Wireshark and TShark. In brackets you will find the program license and the supported operating systems.
SampleCaptures Sample Captures So you're at home tonight, having just installed Wireshark. You want to take the program for a test drive. But your home LAN doesn't have any interesting or exotic packets on it? Here's some goodies to try.
The current cvs version of libpcap (9 October 2006) supports sniffing from USB ports, at least for the Linux platform with the 2.6.9 and later kernels with the usbmon infrastructure. See CaptureSetup/USB for information on this. In a preliminary version of the libpcap support for USB sniffing, USB buses were listed as "interfaces" with a data link type of DLT_USB (186). In the current implementation the data link type is DLT_USB_LINUX (189). For each captured 'packet' (URB, using the USB terminology) the kernel (and thus libpcap) provides two 'events': USB
