Does Network Monitor 3.4 capture all traffic or only traffic it can understand with it's parsers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to see traffic captured even if parsers aren't available to understand all of it.  I'm looking to see if a protocol from a certain service is making it's way across my network. All the info I need is source and destination IP address as well as source and destination port.

     

    I packet captured for a device that is working for this service, but I don't see any frames with the appropriate port that it would be using if it was working (which it is).

     

    If Network Monitor 3.4 does capture and display all traffic whether it has parsers for it or not then I will know I'm doing something wrong elsewhere.

  • Hi,

    the Network Monitor captures all data that is processed by one specified Netword Card. Is it possible that a filter is active? Please deactivate any filters.
