Description Pekka Savola 2000-07-14 02:54:41 EDT
This is probably 7.1 material.

Tcpdump w/ ANK patches is currently in a pretty sad, unmaintained state. 
It'll be kludge at best.

I'd suggest we move to tcpdump-3.5 [or CVS version] from tcpdump.org in the
near future.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-14 08:19:13 EDT
Agreed, but only when the tcpdump.org version is "cooked". When I last looked at
tcpdump.org version (for Red Hat 6.2, around 12/99)., the ANK version still
seemed the
better choice. That may have changed now.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-01-08 12:32:45 EST
Deferred until tcpdump-3.6 is available in the next month or three.
Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-01-08 13:48:49 EST
For the record, I've built a few snapshots and ported some patches to 3.6.  SRPM and stuff available at


Still needs some work, but usable.
Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2001-01-11 15:58:03 EST
For the record, tcpdump-3.6.1 was released yesterday.
