Smile Wireshark remote packet capture, Linux


Hello everybody:

I am trying to do live packet capture from (remote) redhat linux server, by wireshark installed on windows7 machine.
Is there a packet should be installed on remote machine(line winpcap in windows), could you tell me what it's name.

The classic one would be 'tcpdump'. Wireshark also includes dumpcap (and tshark but don't use it unless you avoid analysis-triggering switches). When you capture packets do limit what you need to see using a BPF filter for performance reasons and dump packets to file. Performing remote Live analysis by redirecting tcpdump output over SSH (obviously) requires your to BPF-filter your SSH connection out and will strain the connection more, depending on the volume.

What is the problem you're trying to solve if I may ask?

It's dump to pcap or redirect using SSH. And what do you mean "other way"? What are your problems or constraints? Be clear and verbose about what you ask.

[EDIT]*BTW come to think of it there's cloudshark.org. They've got a plug-in allowing capture upload via their tshark / Wireshark plugin.[/EDIT]

I meen can i install package in redhat like winpcap in windows to get live packets instead of dump and redirect them from remote machine to machine that contains wireshark.
can i use libpcap packet in redhat to do that, or wireshark don't support that in linux.
I hope I have explained to you the problem this time.
