I decided to try it again to see debug it and see what I could be doing wrong and this time it did definitely pick up my test username and password.

I don't know if it accidentally missed it before or what, but it definitely got it this time.

I'm going to check my previous dump files to make sure I didn't just not see the correct area in Wireshark.
