I am trying to save the decrypted packets from a WPA2 network for further analysis using other tools that can't do the decryption. I am aware of the following answers but they both use wireshark. This is script running on a headless client so I cannot use "Export PDUs" in the wireshark menu.

Any suggestions how to do that?

Thanks, Joseph

For now the answer, as far as I know, is you can't (with Wireshark).

But, there is some progress: see bug 3444 and change 5890; the goal there is to implement "export PDU" in tshark.
