Post Error Opening File
I'm running ubuntu 16.04 and I just installed xplico (1.2.0) as per the instructions on the download page, but when I try to run xplico from the command line I run into an "Error Opening File." For example:

xplico -m rltm -i eth0
xplico v1.2.0
Internet Traffic Decoder (NFAT).
See for more information.

Error Opening file

I have run
sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/xplico

sudo xplico -m rltm -i eth0

thinking that this is a permissions issue, but I get the same output.

I can launch the web interface, but I don't think that xplico is decoding the pcap files properly. Perhaps I am not waiting long enough there (a few minutes)?

Thanks for the help!

P.S. As a side note, I'm trying to use xplico to live (that is, in close to real time) render all html pages transmitted over HTTP on a local area network that will probably not see more than 100 requests a minute. Will xplico even be able to decode the pcap files quickly enough for this?

xplico (as application) is running well also with these errors. The errors are not from xplico but from the manipulators that are defined in the configuration file (in your case /opt/xplico/cfg/xplico_cli.cfg). All the manipulators don't find the GeoIP DB in the first two default path and so they give these errors (I have to improve the error message).

Using xplico as application the data extracted are saved on "xdecode" directory therefore you can not visualize the data on the web interface.

About your question 100 connections/min can be decoded by xplico without problem.

Best regards
