Wrong ifconfig output
Authored by: JoeDandy on Sep 23, '02 05:59:01PM

I've been able to use tcpdump on my machine, and here's how.

A quick look at the man page shows that in previous incarnations of this utility you had to be root to use it. I simply ran a sudo command, and presto, I have all the headers I can eat.
Command is as follows (a simple "-i" flag in the command lets you pick the interface):

"sudo tcpdump -i ppp0"

enter your password (if you're system admin), and you're good to go.

Hope this helps.
