Hi All,

I am confused by differences in extcap between the CLI and the GUI. By default (in 3.0.0 on both Windows, Macos), extcap tools are presented as interfaces on the capture page.

Questions 
1. In the Wireshark GUI, if you go to About > Plugins, you can see the extcap directories. Is it possible to get the extcap directory using a CLI command like tshark, dumpcap, etc.?
2. Why does dumpcap -D not show the same interfaces that the GUI does?

Cheers,
Ross
