Why would you do this?  Just use Snort (or better yet, daemonlogger) to write the pcap traffic to disk.

Another question with 'session:binary'.
To save all tcp stream, I used a rule
"alert tcp any any <> any any (session:binary)"
It seems worked except the reassembled result is partly duplicated. for example

220 ESMTP ready
MAIL From:<abc at ...17292...<mailto:abc at ...17292...>>
EHLO                    // duplicated
MAIL From:<abc at ...17292...<mailto:abc at ...17292...>> // duplicated

Has anyone used 'session:binary' and seen this issue?
Is this the only way to save the whole session?
