-The Mesh Observer firmware comes with [[https://github.com/thomotron/serval-mesh-observer-packet-capture|capture and analysis programs]] ready to use. The capture client program (''capture'') will capture packets from the Mesh Observer's Wi-Fi interface and the Mesh Extender's radio via the UHF breakout. The captured packets are sent to the capture server program (''svrCap'') which will dissect each packet, classify them by type and/or payload, and draw them on a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequence_diagram|UML Sequence Diagram]] for analysis (shown to the right).+The Mesh Observer firmware comes with [[https://github.com/thomotron/serval-mesh-observer-packet-capture|capture program]] ready to use.

This can be avoided by using the ''start-stop-daemon'' program packaged with the Mesh Observer firmware: ''start-stop-daemon -Sbx capture <args...>''.
