Hi Guys,

I am trying to save the packets in a file so that I can analyze the external packets. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

You can use tcpdump command to save your packets. You can pass -w in tcpdump command. It will save the output in a file as shown below.

$ tcpdump -w 0001.pcap -i eth0
tcpdump: listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 65535 bytes
4 packets captured
4 packets received by filter
0 packets dropped by kernel


Hope this will help you!
