Hi avizit,

  I already gone through these links but couldn`t get whole concept. Do u know the book or link for complete description of capturing the packets.

This is a tutorial on using the perl pcap module , maybe you can get something out of it.

These seems to be an IBM tutorial on it too
but i am too lazy to register and check
