Conversion of a full .pcap file (incl. header information) into txt using tshark?

3 New Member


I have a stored .pcap file of Wireshark.

Using command prompt (tshark command), i want to convert the .pcap file into a text file and store it with all information extracted from the .pcap file.
How should i do this?

Currently, when i do this:
tshark -nr "C:\Users\V ivek Ganti\pcap_file .pcap" -T text > "C:\Users\V ivek Ganti\myoutput. txt"

in the myoutput.txt, i only see basic information of the packets and not their header information, i.e., i only see this:

1 0.000000 00:22:fa:9c:c9: 7c -> ff:ff:ff:ff:ff: ff ARP Who has Tell
2 0.513198 -> UDP Source port: 17500 Destination port: 17500

How do i see the full information of each packet using tshark?

Thank you very much in advance,

Did you try using fields and specifying all the fields instead of just dumping them to -T text ?

Such as
fields The values of fields specified with the -e option, in a form specified by the -E option. For example,

-T fields -E separator=, -E quote=d

would generate comma-separated values (CSV) output suitable for importing into your favorite spreadsheet program.
From the tshark info page

So i just tried adding -V after the -T text in the command. Saw it on the link you sent.
Works like a charm!

Thanks a million!
