       log2pcap - Extract network traces from Samba log files

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

       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 head‐
       er/parameters right, 10 to get the first 512 data bytes of  the	packet
       and 50 to get the whole packet.

       -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.

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

	      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.

	      Print a summary of command line options.

       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

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.

       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.

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