Observer Analyzer : Observer Analyzer : Packet Captures : Capturing network traffic : Transferring a packet capture to another probe instance
Transferring a packet capture to another probe instance
If for any reason you want to transfer and view a packet capture from one probe instance to another, you can do that. The packet capture must be saved on the remote probe instance. By default the file is saved in C:\Program Files\Observer\Data.
1. Select the remote probe instance from which you want to transfer the packet capture.
2. Choose File and Open > Remote Packet Captures.
The Probe Packet Capture Files window opens. This option is disabled if you selected a local probe instance.
3. Select the files you want to transfer.
4. Choose whether you want to transfer the files or view them, and whether Expert Analysis should be included.
5. If you want to transfer the files to a different probe instance, select the probe instance to which to transfer the files. By choosing a probe-to-probe transfer you do not need to use an intermediary location. It is a direct transfer.
6. Choose whether to apply a filter to the data before the transfer is made.
7. Choose whether to delete the files after the transfer is complete.
