Downloading pcaps with panxapi

Not applicable

I'm trying to download application-pcap files using panxapi (not just file listings), but am not able to get it to work right.

My end goal is to specify a folder and have it download every .pcap in that folder.

Running panxapi like this just gives me a list of files in the given directory:

./bin/ --export application-pcap --recursive --src /20140702/ --dst ./pcap/ -DDD

If I specify a file instead of an entire directory, I get an error message:

./bin/ --export application-pcap --recursive --src /20140702/<filename>.pcap --dst ./pcap/test.pcap -D

export: "no handler for content-type: set(['text/plain'])"

Has anyone gotten pcap downloads to work with panxapi, and if so, what syntax did you use?

There is an issue right now with this feature and seems is not fixed in 6.0.4. We will track if the fix will come in next release.

Sorry about that
