kernel thing
Authored by: miggins on Aug 09, '01 04:26:39AM

I think it's something to do with the way the ppp0 interface is implemented in the Darwin kernel. If you try to run nmap on the ppp0 interface it gives a bit more info (which I don't have at hand). I also noticed that Apple's supplied network port scanner only let's you use the en0 interface.

I would say that tcpdump simply will not work with ppp0 until someone changes the implementation to support it. Try the darwin kernel mailing list or something.
