A short description of my setup:

A Raspberry-pi with a LoRa receiver, here I am continuously dumping the received LoRaWan packets to a PCAP file, after each received packet I write the content to a PCAP file and fflush the buffer.

The PCAP file is stored on a samba folder on the RPi.

The shared folder is accessed by a windows PC, where wireshark is opend.

What I am looking for is to view the LoRa capturing in real-time from my wireshark.

Problem: As you might already have guessed, then this is not working I need to close and reopen the file each time I need the latest capture. I dont know if this (real-time monitoring) is possible or am i missing something / some feature that might help me out here?

You can use sshdump to capture live from a network interface on a different system. Does that suit your needs?

You're welcome... and yes, I need to explore the extcap feature some more too, as I only know that it exists and is useful, but I have not played with it yet (shame on me ;-))
