If I send a structure data across then network, then can you tell me the best method to dissect the individual data? Network byte ordering is a problem. And why is the tcpdump program skipping some packets sometimes? I'll be very thankful if you provide me a solution to the deadlock I'm facing.

AFAIK, tcpdump will not process packets that are malformed. As for your other question "dissect the individual data" - you have to write your own plugin that would work with wireshark /tshark.
