Receiving captured packets in Wireshark from PCAP Remote running on Android emulator

Accessing the PCAP Remote SSH server running on Android emulator is a bit tricky since the emulator network is not directly accessible from the host machine. To make Wireshark be able to connect to PCAP Remote we need to enable port forwarding.

To do that, go to the platform-tools directory in your Android SDK directory. Then, run the bellow cmd:

adb forward tcp:15432 tcp:15432

Now, you can connect to the SSH server if you specify the connection details in Wireshark as follows:

host: 127.0.0.1
port: 15432
