parsing pcap-ng files

kathys39 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Has anyone had any luck parsing the new pcap-ng files from wireshark? Or netmon files? My client uses netmon to collect data, which I am trying to convert to normal libpcap file. I opened them in wireshark, but wireshark now only exports to pcap-ng. The net::Pcap modules seem to handle only pcap file, not the newer pcap-ng files. TIA for any help

    You need to upgrade libpcap libpcap-1.2.1 works for me on CentOS 6 Andrew Daviel
      You can also try to convert the pcap-ng file to libpcap format at http://pcapng.com/
        Just convert it: editcap -F libpcap <file.pcapng> <file.pcap>
