Wireshark-bugs: [Wireshark-bugs] [Bug 5533] New: restart button does not work when doing remote
Date: Wed, 29 Dec 2010 01:16:57 -0800 (PST)

           Summary: restart button does not work when doing remote capture
                    via ssh
           Product: Wireshark
           Version: 1.4.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Debian
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Low
         Component: Wireshark
        AssignedTo: [email protected]
        ReportedBy: [email protected]

Build Information:

I am running the following command from [1] to capture remotely via ssh:

wireshark -k -i <(ssh -l root remote-host tshark -w - not tcp port 22)

When I press the restart capture button I get this message in a dialog:

Unrecognized libpcap format

Either the restart capture button should be disabled for capture from remote
pipes or it should work as expected.

I would expect that it would empty the list of packets in the GUI, truncate any
temporary files storing packets and continue capturing packets.
