The current Npcap 1) appears to build remote capture support but 2) that support doesn't work - see, for example, this ask.wireshark.org question, this Wireshark bug, and the-tcpdump-group/libpcap#795.

Libpcap 1.8.x's remote-capture support had a number of bugs; 1.9.0 was the first release where it was reasonably usable (even on Windows, much less on UN*Xes).

Please upgrade to libpcap 1.9.0 (and let us know what changes you need to apply, and why).

Looks like we'll get this included in the next release. Had some difficulty due to this libpcap issue: the-tcpdump-group/libpcap#810

Yeah, should be fine. We often keep issues open until release when we need confirmation from the original reporter, but this is straightforward.

Wireshark bug 15547, which reported that remote capture wasn't working with Npcap, now has a user who said "I have the same problem" saying that remote capture is working with npcap v0.992.
