file -vv -s 0 -w /location/name of fil


Hi, completely new, sorry if im not doing it right but can any one please explain to me whats going on in the subject header?

I am running a command line emulator on my android device and have allowed tcpdump read/writable permission(chmod 77)

I'm confused on what the next part is, here is the exact commands i have:

root@m0: /system/xbin # chmod 777 tcpdump

root@m0: /system/xbin # tcpdump -vv -s 0 -w /storage/extSdCard/tcp.cap

thanks.

1. do you know what the tcpdump cmd does? If not, I suggest you start here http://linux.die.net/man/8/tcpdump.
See also wikipedia and loads(!) of Google links.

Can you expand on that; what do you mean?

If you understand what tcpdump does, then your next port of call would be eg http://linux.die.net/man/1/wireshark
