By "a specific file", you mean "a specific binary" right? So start a program, and only capture traffic related to it? What platform are you using, Linux, Windows, OS X or something else?

When I wrote "a specific file " I ment any software ,for example I am playing Call Of Duty Multiplayer and I want to capture only the packets related to this game .

I am using windows .

On Windows you can use Microsoft Message Analyzer to capture all traffic for a specific process, e.g. your game.

Wireshark should be able to open the captures from Message Analyzer.
