NAME
       log2pcap	- Extract network traces from Samba log	files

SYNOPSIS
       log2pcap	[-h] [-q] [logfile] [pcap_file]

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is part of the	samba(7) suite.

       log2pcap	reads in a samba log file and generates	a pcap file (readable
       by most sniffers, such as ethereal or tcpdump) based on the packet
       dumps in	the log	file.

       The log file must have a	log level of at	least 5	to get the SMB
       header/parameters right,	10 to get the first 512	data bytes of the
       packet and 50 to	get the	whole packet.

OPTIONS
       -h
	   If this parameter is	specified the output file will be a hex	dump,
	   in a	format that is readable	by the text2pcap utility.

       -q
	   Be quiet. No	warning	messages about missing or incomplete data will
	   be given.

       logfile
	   Samba log file. log2pcap will try to	read the log from stdin	if the
	   log file is not specified.

       pcap_file
	   Name	of the output file to write the	pcap (or hexdump) data to. If
	   this	argument is not	specified, output data will be written to
	   stdout.

EXAMPLES
       Extract all network traffic from	all samba log files:

			  $ log2pcap < /var/log/* > trace.pcap

       Convert to pcap using text2pcap:

		$ log2pcap -h samba.log	| text2pcap -T 139,139 - trace.pcap

VERSION
       This man	page is	correct	for version 3 of the Samba suite.

BUGS
       Only SMB	data is	extracted from the samba logs, no LDAP,	NetBIOS	lookup
       or other	data.

       The generated TCP and IP	headers	don't contain a	valid checksum.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       This manpage was	written	by Jelmer Vernooij.
