Embedded Packet capture hex dump conversion to pcap files for wireshark

We are troubleshooting some issues with secure device provisioning and we do not have remote FTP or TFTP over the public internet with our problem sites.  We are using embedded packet capture to capture the traffic on the router and on the WAN interface.  We are unable to export normally without ftp or tftp and are left with doing a hex dump on the router using the following command.

sho monitor capture buffer <buffer name> dump

This provides an output that we are logging using putty log feature. 

The big question is can we convert the hex output to a file that wireshark can read?

Example of the output.

Embedded Packet capture hex dump conversion to pcap files for wi

You might have to do some pre-processing first, but text2pcap should be able to do what you want. Check the man pages for details.

Embedded Packet capture hex dump conversion to pcap files for wi

We discovered the text2cap function but the formatting proved to be a very time consuming process.  We found another method that is much easier.

We used SCP to transfer the files over port 22

1. Export the capture buffer to the router flash

  monitor capture buffer export flash:/

2. Enable the SCP server on the remote router

ip scp-server enable

3. Configure a level 15 ID and Password

username PASS privilege 15 password XXX

4. From a local machine that has SSH access to the remote router public IP perform the following

scp -v (userID)@pubIP:flash:

the -v is the verbose switch.  It can be turned off.

This worked much better than trying to format the data
