I am running apache2 webserver on my machine. When I try to access a webpage locally through a webbrowser as locahost/index.html then i dont see any packets having protocol http in the capture although i can see plenty of tcp packets.

When i enter locahost/index.html in the browser i get this:

enter image description here

But i expect to see the http request(s) and response(s) in the result.

What am i missing here?

  • What do you mean, plenty of TCP packets? – Ron Trunk Jun 14 at 14:20

  • You need to install the virtual loopback driver for ncap to work - however, that is a host issue which is off-topic here. – Zac67 Jun 14 at 18:50
  • looks that nobody is listening on the port, check if you have some process listening on that IP and port – camp0 Jun 14 at 20:01
