Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark hosts file location

No, currently Wireshark does not switch hosts files with the profiles (to be quite honest, wasn't even aware, that we support something like using non-system hosts files at all).

Currently I am in the middle of rewriting the profile system and can put this on the todo list. Could you describe the behavior a little bit?

kind regards
Roland

Hi Graham,

I just saw this: https://ask.wireshark.org/question/8014/hosts-file-manager/

My first impulse was "put the hosts in a profile directory and switch it via profiles", but when I tested that it didn't work (no names resolved). I'm not sure if the hosts file is even read when it's in a profile directory, or where exactly Wireshark expects a hosts file. Do you know if that's supposed to work?

Cheers,
Jasper
