Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] No outgoing PPP traffic
Date: Tue, 22 Sep 2009 19:31:20 -0400



I am running a machine with:


Widows XP

Verizon Wireless  - Dial Up Connection

WinPcap 4.0.2 (I tried the 4.1 beta too)


After I select the interface to capture and start logging.  I see a lot of traffic with my IP address as the Destination, but no outgoing (Source) ppp traffic.  The only traffic I see with my IP address as the source is SNMP – Get Requests and ICMP pings.




I have also tried WinDump & Microsoft Network Monitor and get the same results.


Is there a setting in windows XP to allow the outgoing ppp traffic to be logged? I wouldn’t image that windows would block outgoing but allow incoming logs.


I read that there was a problem with possible VPN clients and outgoing traffic.  I have a Nortel VPN installed, but it is not currently running.


Thank you,
