Thumbs down TCPDUMP on SuSE Linux

Hi ,

I am unable to capture traffic on UDP Port 5060 while running tcpdump on SuSE Linux.

Kernel version

Solution to tcpdump issue

looks like the tcpdump cannot run port filter as tehre is vlan header in the ethernet packets. So in order to skip that put the following filter

/usr/sbin/tcpdump -n -i eth4 vlan and port 5060

Putting your real Internet public addesses in a public forum is asking for trouble. Enough said.

Try putting the "port 5060" before any of the dash options. It's just a crazy idea but I always put my host and port parameters before any dash parameters. Of course I prefer to use Ethereal to tcpdump anyway.
/usr/sbin/tcpdump port 5060 -i eth4 -n
