Thanks Guy. dumpcap perfectly suited to what I exactly wanted. Also, do you have any suggestions for the older wireshark versions that didn't use dumpcap for capturing?

With recent versions of Wireshark, any installation that can capture
traffic has dumpcap, because Wireshark runs dumpcap to do the traffic
capture.  That's been true for several releases.
