Wouldn’t it be nice if you could search existing packet captures for a protocol?
Well now you can with Search Pcaps. Search over 6000 pcaps to find the right one!
igmp "AirPcap trace": Find all captures that reference the igmp protocol and “AirPcap trace” in the description.
wlan llc [radiotap]: All captures that reference wlan and llc in description or protocols, and contain the radiotap protocol.
["size", "length", "packets", "ifaces"]
["==", "!=", ">=", "<=", ">", "<"]
size >= 100KB: All captures that are 100KB or larger
length > 60: All captures longer than 60 seconds
Sometimes it can be beneficial to use someone else’s captures instead of your own. Here are a couple reasons why this might make sense:
Whatever your reason, there are many repositories of public packet captures. The largest collection of packet capture collections is hosted by Netresec. Of these, Wireshark’s Sample Captures is the most complete.
