determine tcpdump packet loss

hello to all

I've a few simple and related questions:

how can i calculate the packet loss in a tcpdump log file?
Any tool?

Which are the tcpdump options that i must use to see the sequence number of the IP packets? If i do this in the source and in the receiver it is possible to calculate the packet loss... Am i correct?

I would appreciate any help...

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

In this case I've closed the 1 minute older original because
networking seems to be the better forum choice ...
