Hello, I need to modify a pcap file. For example, I need to edit the IP address, timestamp, URL, ... fields. How can I do it? Do I have to write a new software application, or is one available in the network?

Thanks Paolino

What you need are tools that are usually used for anonymization and/or packet replay of trace files. You might want to take a look at tcprewrite, bittwiste, pktanon and other tools. You can also download the Sharkfest 2011 presentation (A-11) I did at the retrospective page:
