In addition the the other fine answers you got, after you've written to a file with -w and are later reading it with -r you can raise the snaplength with -s to view a bit more without seeing the whole packet. Often that's a nice way to narrow things down when you don't yet know exactly what you're looking for. Also, you will want to get familiar with filter expressions, which may appear at the end of the tcpdump command: "tcpdump <...> host 192.168.10.100 and port 999" would only show traffic for port 999 to or from 192.168.10.11, for instance. -- Darrin Chandler | Phoenix BSD Users Group [EMAIL PROTECTED] | http://bsd.phoenix.az.us/ http://www.stilyagin.com/ | _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
