Let me recommend a book to you:  Network Intrusion Detection (Third
Edition) by Stephen Northcutt and Judy Novak.  Its awesome.  Later
chapters provide detailed insight into processing TCPDUMP and WINDUMP
parameters.  A definite must when you talk about sniffing networks.

Here's a link to some Google Print online version of the book.. Better
to purchase.


But to answer your question, download Ethereal and open the TCPDUMP
file, from there you can right click and choose FOLLOW TCP STREAM.  This
should give you the results you're looking for.

Kind Regards,

message readed with the sniffer?
