  • sshdump - Install sshdump, an extcap interface to capture from a remote host through SSH
  • ssl - Add support for SSL/TLS connections (Secure Socket Layer / Transport Layer Security)
  • text2pcap - Install text2pcap, to generate a capture file from an ASCII hexdump of packets
  • tfshark - Install tfshark, a terminal-based version of the FileShark capability
  • threads - Add threads support for various packages. Usually pthreads
  • tshark - Install tshark, to dump and analyzer network traffic from the command line
