this command won't save the packet at all, just some human readable text data. to save the packet, you would use "-r /tmp/file.cap" on the command line.

Thanks for reply
but i have expected this command on my RHEL5.1 machine and it captured the packet in text format.
question is....can we save the content into a file without using '>' operator.

Well I'd wonder why on earth you couldn't use one, maybe you need to escape it instead?

You could use tee if you wish:

tshark | tee file.txt

... why ... not? ... If you offer an explanation, a reason why the redirection operator ruins your day, someone will offer a way to avoid the unstated problem.

i know its a bit silly think to ask but i m getting problem thats why i asked.
i m into a telecom project and we have a tool FunTasy used for telecom testing automation.
we need to capture sniff and safe that content into a file for further validation.
FunTasy has its own command prompt with limitations and currently it is not accepting charcter like '>'.

Anywaz.....i hope that tee option will be used as a workaround

Thanks for your help


Regards,
Varun
