Windows 7: TCP/IP packets and wireshare

Windows 7 64 bit
TCP/IP packets and wireshare

windows 7, 64 bit, Visual Studio 2008, C++

I am writing a TCP/IP application to send data to vendor software on another computer. In order to check my data I need to use Wireshare. I am practicting on my home computer. It is connected to a Belkin router than a cable modem.

when I capture some packets they are not formatted according to my SAMs book on TCP/IP. According to the book the packet starts with the version number and IHL and the source address begins in byte 13 (using decimal, counting one to N).
Picking an arbitrary transmission, in my wireshark display the version number begins in byte 15, not 1. The source address follows at the expected relative address, now byte 27 instead of the expected 13. The below was copied from my wireshark display.
What is this 13 byte offset? And what is in those first 12 bytes?
In this example my computer is (C0.A8.2.2 hex) and the destination is (41.fe.f8.64 hex)

Wireshare or Wireshark??? You mentioned both. If you meant Wireshark, as I suspect, it isnt an easy app to figure out on your own. I suggest looking at some of the many tutorials on Wireshark on their website and even youtube. It will take some time, but you eill get it.

Also, how old is the SAMS book you mentioned?

Oops, I did mean Wire Shark. The book has a copyright date of 2009. Title is "Sams Teach Yourself TCP/IP"

I need to look at date that is sent from or to I don't want any of the regular polling and keep alive stuff. The communications of interest is initiated from with a broadcast to any IP address and a request for port 49000. (That I how I read the code, The vendor's app resides on and will accept that connection and respond.) Then *.50 will mostly send data and and *.100 will mostly receive the data. I need to see those packets.
