    When i tried to run imsniff got this message:
    "imsniff: error while loading shared libraries: libpcap.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
    The libpcap0.8 is intalled on my Debian box, and those libs are in /usr/lib/
    Where imsniff is looking for them?
    Thank you all

      Look at ld.so.conf and make sure that path is there.

      If it still fails, try strace'ing imsniff to find out what's going on.

      sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0.8 /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0
