Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

By different platform, I think you mean a different operating system, or different hardware ?

The answer is yes, the capture is not dependant on the hardware or OS you are using, just that you are on the same network segment as the system you are trying to capture the traffic from. This means that you need to either confiure the switch to mirror all the traffic from that host to your capture machine, or use a hub, that does the same thing.

If you meant sometihng else, please clarify,and I will try to answer it again.
