TCPDUMP Cheat Sheet

From my perspective, before Wireshark, there was tcpdump. This terminal or command line tool was "the way" to capture packets and it is still in wide use today.  Here is our cheat sheet for tcpdump.

Tcpdump uses the Berkley Packet Filter (BPF for short) syntax.  For newcomers this can seem very complex.  This cheat sheet will help you get started.

Ofcourse, once you have the capture, you will want to do packet analysis in the defacto tool: Wireshark.
