Interrogating Wireshark for DNS queries/responses

Heyas,

Are there any other commands inside Wireshark other than 'dns.resp.addr' I could use to find what DNS addresses are being requested. My reason for doing this is that I am trying to exclude Apple traffic from my proxy and I would rather do it via DNS address than exclude whole ip ranges.

Thank you.

How many computers are you tying to scan for?  This might be something worth looking at.

Just be aware that dns.resp.addr is only supported in wireshark version 1.4.0 to 1.10.10.  After 1.10.10 it does not exist.

What proxy are you running?

You can use the -T fields switch and print "dns.qry.name" with tshark.

(sidenote - There is a DNS tab in NetworkMiner, which displays a nice list of all DNS queries and responses in a pcap file.)

or You can also use  tshark -2 -R "dns && (dns.flags.response == 0) && ! dns.response_in"
