Xplico v0.5.2 Ubuntu package

It is available for download the binary package of Xplico 0.5.2 for Ubuntu 9.04.
After installation, you must follow these steps:

  • edit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to increase the size of files to upload:
    • post_max_size = 100M
    • upload_max_filesize = 100M
  • restart Apache2
  • start Xplico decoding manager: sudo /opt/xplico/script/
  • open url: http://localhost:9876 (Xplico Interface login)

For optimal viewing of web pages reconstructed by Xplico (using only the data in pcap files, and NOT go to the Internet) set the proxy in Firefox at localhost with port 9876.
