This option helps us to refine the outcome of captured traffic. Read and Write in a file In Tshark we can write and read into. Write option -w allows us to write raw packet data output to a standard. To write the packets into a. Using the verbose mode, we can see the information that each packet contains and for this option we can use the parameter -V. It can set the format of the output in the way that it becomes easy to understand. This information is quite equivalent to the verbose mode which we used earlier.
And to have output in this format type the following command : tshark -r packets. This output is in a form of oneliner summary of each data packets or multi-line detail view of each data packets depending upon each data packet specification. These one-liners are very quick to understand as well as reliable. For this, use the following command : tshark -r packets.
And for this format type : tshark -r packets. It is an open standard file format that displays text in a readable form. The information in this format is fully documented and referred at wolfram.
To see that packets in this format, type : tshark -r packets. And for this format use the following command : tshark -r packets. This is the simplest of the formats. And for this, use the following command : tshark -r packets.
To try this, type : tshark -r packets. To better understand these data packets we need to decode them which leads to a difference in the size of the file and to check the size of any given file at the given moment use the following command : ls -lh packets.
But with the help of some external source, we can also view our data packets in HTML. So to achieve that first, we need to save our data packets in PDML format and then convert it into an XML file using the following command : tshark -r packets. So, we are going to use xsltproc tool to execute this file it which will help us to create our HTML page. Creating the HTML page will format all the unnecessary information and only let us view the usable data.
And by using the -f option we can capture data packets of a particular port. It helps us to better analyze the data packets of the network.
We are using this feature to capture TCP port 80 and the command for this is : tshark -i eth0 -c 5 -f "tcp port 80" 1 tshark -i eth0 -c 5 -f "tcp port 80" Display filter Display filter was introduced by Wireshark. It helps us to filter the captured data packets or live data packets.
With the help of this filter, we can request for any kind of filter that we want to capture in the live environment. So get yourself familiar with the features of it as and stay tuned for the advance features of tshark in our next article.
tshark: Basic Tutorial with Practical Examples
It lets you capture packet data from a live network, or read packets from a previously saved capture file, either printing a decoded form of those packets to the standard output or writing the packets to a file. Without any options set, TShark will work much like tcpdump. It will use the pcap library to capture traffic from the first available network interface and displays a summary line on the standard output for each received packet. When run with the -r option, specifying a capture file from which to read, TShark will again work much like tcpdump, reading packets from the file and displaying a summary line on the standard output for each packet read. TShark is able to detect, read and write the same capture files that are supported by Wireshark. Compressed file support uses and therefore requires the zlib library. If the zlib library is not present when compiling TShark, it will be possible to compile it, but the resulting program will be unable to read compressed files.

This parameter prints the Version information of the installed TShark. For the same reasons, TShark has given us a beautiful option -G. This option will make the TShark print a list of several types of reports that can be generated. Official Manual of TShark used the word Glossaries for describing the types of reports. To explore its contents, we ran the command as shown in the image given below.
