Wireshark or TCPDump will work, you will need to save your captures as a pcap file and import into Elcomsoft.

If using tcpdump don't forget to set your snap length (-s) or you won't necessarily be collecting full packets. I usually use a snap length of 0 which should capture the full packets, I believe that most OS's will default it to 68 bytes which is enough to grab most packets headers but not their data.
