As a part of some content development and revision on MPLS, I was trying to capture some MPLS Pcap Files from the Vmx Router. The problem was that every time I capture a file, I had to first scp or sftp into the device and then after successful import, I had to run Wireshark on it.

The Aim of the post is to fetch the pcap file and run Wireshark on it. Am not a decent programmer by any stretch of the imagination, anyone can see that from my code 😉 but the point that matters is that it works and you should give it a try too.

And when I query for an existent file
