Can not record with tshark

Post by rastek » Tue Nov 17, 2020 6:27 am

Hello all,

I tried few ways but can not record anything, code does not give an error but there is not captured file et all. I hope someone can help me on this
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo();
psi.FileName = @"C:\Program Files\wireshark\tshark ";
psi.Arguments = "-i vEthernet -w capture-output.pcap";
psi.UseShellExecute = false;
psi.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
psi.CreateNoWindow = true;
Process tsharkProcess = Process.Start(psi);
string s = tsharkProcess.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();

Delay.Duration(10000, false);


I also tried to run in a cmd but did not help (I can paste code here, forum does not accept)

Two things...
Have you tried to run the wireshark command line you are using in code via Windows CMD? Just make sure if wireshark itself works as expected.

If the cmd line itself works OK in Windows CMD window, then debug your code (line by line) and make sure that below line produces correct (error-less) process...

Code: Select all

Process tsharkProcess = Process.Start(psi);
