Hi, when I run "tcpreplay -i eth0 'filename'" I receive the following warning : "DLT (LINUX_SLL) does not match that of the outbound interface: eth0 (EN10MB)"...And no packets are being send to the network (and need to monitor SIP and RTP packets)...This is the first time when this warning is raised: all of my other pcap files are played successfully...
How can I solve this one???

The error is telling you that your pcap file's DLT encapsulation is LINUX_SLL which generally happens when running "tcpdump -i any". Long story short, LINUX_SLL is *not* like DLT_EN10MB which is more commonly known as Ethernet which is what your eth0 NIC is. Basically this means that the layer 2 header is wrong and replaying that pcap over eth0 would result in gibberish on the wire.

If possible, I recommend re-capturing the traffic using tcpdump/Wireshark but specifying a single NIC. Alternatively, you can use tcprewrite to convert that pcap file from LINUX_SLL to EN10MB.

In the future, please don't open tickets to ask questions... that's what the tcpreplay-users list is for. Thanks.
