Hi Bruce,

You previously said you use WireShark to inspect NetTalk traffic.
Can you please explain how to use WireShark to inspect the NetTalk traffic.

I am testing on 127.0.0.1:88.
I would like to see all the header & packet my browser send to the NetTalk server.
My NettTalk server connects to a web/API service on the internet.
I would like to see the headers & packets it sends to the web/API service and the return.
It would be great if you might be able to demonstrate this live also on n NetTalk webinar.

I have WireShark installed but either I am stupid or it is not capturing the correct data but I am not seeing anything that looks like header data.

Regards

Hi,
I used WireShark many years ago exactly for what you are talking about.  As I recall, there wireshark had all the ports represented.  I had to select the right conversation( port) for it to monitor.  Then there were several display modes to select after getting your correct port and clearing the screen.  Then you could watch YOUR data go by.
I don't even have it installed any more so this info is from what I can recall.
Good luck,
ROn

Hi ROn,

Thanks for the explanation.
I have been battling to see what I want.
Seeing everything I don't want, I think.

Will try your description again and see if I can get it to display what I want.

I haven't used wireshark in a long time.
In my app I set
NetShowSend=>1
and
NetShowReceive=>1
as conditional compiles,
and this sends all the output and input to debugview.

Cheers
Bruce

Hi Bruce,

Thank you very much.

I totally forgot about these settings for NetTalk.
I am also using LibCurl in one instance and I wanted to see what LibCurl sends and receives.
