[Dshield] Off topic tcpdump question - please

Here's one way...

tcpdump -Rc -s1500 -l 'host myHost' > /tmp/myHostDump.txt &

myHost can be an IP also. This is what I use on DG/UX. Here's another sample
that I used to help diagnose an LPD problem we were having. It just gets
traffic between the 2 hosts on port 515.

tcpdump -Rc -s1500 -l 'host production' and 'host boxingline' and 'port 515'
> /tmp/515-problems-dump.txt &
