I am running Wireshark on my linux machine and i have simple python web server running on localhost:8080
I am capturing only local port 8080. When i open browser on localhost:8080 wireshark captures huge amount of tcp communication (as page loads with all resources) but there`s no HTTP only TCP…
Why i cannot capture HTTP on custom port ?
Right-click on the TCP stream, then select Decode as…. Go to the Transport tab, if you aren’t already on it. From the list, select HTTP. Click OK and enjoy.
