Hi,

I need to set the group permissions for files created by DumpCap.

In this post I see the option " -g " is supposed to exist (

Can someone please point me to how I can get a version that to have
access to this option?


You'd need Wireshark 1.6.0 or later.  The current version (1.8.4) would be
your best bet.

BTW I noticed that this option is not listed in dumpcap's man page; I'll
correct that shortly.
