I've a server process and a client process running on my machine. To capture the packets transmitted between them, I've installed the Npcap Loopback Adapter as suggested in the ever-so-famous Wireshark Loopback link. I've successfully installed the latest version of Npcap, 0.99-r4. On selecting the network adapter in the Wireshark capture options, and pinging 127.0.0.1 (from the same machine, obviously), nothing shows up in the capture results. Can anyone point out what I'm missing or where I've gone wrong?
What I've tried:
- There's a field in the Network Adapter Driver options of Npcap called Network address. Initially, it was empty. I entered 127.0.0.1 first but it didn't work. Because it says NETWORK address, i tried entering 127.0.0.0 as a silly attempt. That didn't work either.
- On running the command ipconfig /all, the results for Npcap Network Adaptor seemed not-wrong to me. Here's a snapshot:
- All my other adapters are working just fine. I think its worth mentioning this.
Any kind of help would be appreciated. I couldn't find any source addressing an issue like this. There're none as far as my googling abilities go. Thanks in advance!
