I want to create a txt-file with the data of my filtered UDP-packets. When i create a custom colu**mn with the field-type "" it shows my filtered packet-data but only the first 24byte and "..."

Is it possible to create a txt-file with the full frame-content (without the header information)?

Thanks a lot!

What do you mean by "without the header information"?

I believe he means the payload data, similar to "Follow UDP Stream".

You can try using tshark with the -x option that will basically dump the whole packet including hex bytes in textform and filter/grep for the parts you're looking for or try using the field sogether with -Tfields

e.g. tshark -r test.pcap -Y udp -Tfields -e
