What kind of text are you trying to add to the pcap ? Have you researched “editcap” and “mergecap” ? I believe editcap should allow you to do what you need. I’d have to research it more to give you exact options, but both are powerful when it comes to editing pcap files.

One Answer:


If you post is exactly what you have in your batch file, then you'll need to quote the pcap filename. You may also need to quote the other parameters. Test by executing exactly the same command at the command prompt.
