Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] wireshark and virtual ethernet adapters by parallels
The packets between the two systems don't go through the physical interface. You could try to run sniffers on the guest system first. Alternatively you could try to run sniffers against the virtual interface on the host system.

hi all!

does anybody has allready tried to capture packages sent between mac
os x and a guest system running under parallels?

parallels creates an interface:

en2: flags=8963<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST>
mtu 1500
	inet6 fe80::21c:42ff:fe00:8%en2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x7
	inet 10.211.55.2 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.211.55.255
	ether 00:1c:42:00:00:08
	media: autoselect status: active
	supported media: autoselect

and the guest system has the ip-address 10.211.55.4

so i thought i should be able to capture packages sent between the
systems by capturing en2 but wireshark doesn't see any packages.
does anybody has an idea how i could capture them (parallels runs
under mac os x)?

thanks in advance
