However, the default tcpdump parameters result in a capture file where each packet is truncated, because most versions of tcpdump, will, by default, only capture the first 68 or 96 bytes of each packet.
To ensure that you capture complete packets, use the following command:
- Code: Select all
tcpdump -i <interface> -s 65535 -w <some-file>
You will have to specify the correct interface and the name of a file to save into. In addition, you will have to terminate the capture with ^C when you believe you have captured enough packets.
