Hi , Is there any command line option to generate "Follow tcp stream"(which is availabe in GUI) ,so that we can look at the messages which are exchanged between the apllications as a whole with out having the message broken in multiple parts. Basically i wanted to track all the payload which are getting exchanged between th applications..and write it to some file..so i need to find a commandline option which will does the same thing which "Follow tcp stream" GUI does.

As tshark 1.7.1 is not available on your platform (none of the big distributions provide it as a package), I recommend to use tcpflow (see also Wiki: http://wiki.wireshark.org/Tools). This tool will be provided by most of the linux distributions and it does extract the data of tcp sessions.
This creates several files, named by the IP Addresses and Ports of a conversation, e.g.
If you filter away the HTTP response headers, you will get what you are looking for.
