Sorry for the few post in this day but im working in to much project at the same time :S

I have try this xplico today and it work pretty good,it still need some fix , but it do the work.

Ok for start you need to install Tcpdump and Xplico from your distribution installation command.
for dependance:

apt-get install sqlite tcpdump tshark apache2 php5 php5-sqlite build-essential perl zlib1g-dev libpcap-dev libsqlite0-dev libmysqlclient15-dev php5-cli python-all

if you have download the .deb you have only to give
dpkg -i name.deb

if you have download the source code you have to give with root permission
make install

for install the interface you need apache with rewrite, php5 and php5-sqlite
and put the file in your web server
usually /var/www/

post_max_size = 100M
upload_max_filesize = 100M

ok now for the live capture we have to give this command (and every time you need a new live caption)

cd /opt/xplico/script/db/sqlite2

At this time you only need to go at localhost :9876

Insert the user and password write in the bottom and insert the capture id
when you have insert all id
you can run this:

cd /opt/xplico/script

(in the source that i have download this script is copyrighted i hope the author can modify it with GPL2 because it need some modify for the tcpdump command in it)
I had received a mail from the author about this script when he said that in the neXt Release is all GPL !
Thanks for the fast replay :)
