How to install and use tcpdump command on Centos7/RHEL7



TCPDump is a command line packet sniffer/ packet analyzer tool which used to capture or filter TCP/IP packets that received or transferred over a network on a specific interface.


Installation:

By default, tcpdump is available under most of Linux distributions but if we have a minimal installation of RHEL/Centos than need to install manually using the following method.

CentOS7/RHEL7:

Install tcpdump on CentOS7 & RHEL7 using the following command,

[root@ linuxcnf ~]# yum install tcpdump

Examples:

To get the network packets from all network interfaces, run the following command,

[root@ linuxcnf ~]# tcpdump -i any

To get the network packets from a single interface, run the following command,

[root@ linuxcnf ~]# tcpdump -i eth0
  
 Check packets based on interfaces and destination IP address

Get all the packets based on interfaces and destination IP address, using the following command,

[root@ linuxcnf ~]# tcpdump –i eth0 dst 192.168.43.100
