tcpdump loops in ssh


Hi.

I am a newbie. I have a doubt on ssh and tcpdump working together. I have initiated the ssh server in my own computer and I have login it.
Anyone can tell me why, when I run "tcpdump - i lo" it enters in an infinite loop ?.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to LQ.

If you are connected via ssh then it will show the data being sent about the previous connection, hence it will keep going.

It's an exercise of the university, and still there are many concepts that I do not understand. Can you explain me step by step what happens between ssh and tcpdump? in which moment it happens the loop?

Thank you very much.

Think about it. If you know what tcpdump does then you shouldn't be confused.
