       ipgrab - A Verbose Packet Sniffer

SYNOPSIS

       ipgrab [ -blmnpt ] [ -c cnt ] [ -i if ] [ expr ]

IMPORTANT NOTE

       more accurate information.

DESCRIPTION

       ipgrab reads and  parses  packets  from  the  link  layer  through  the
       application  layer,  dumping explicit header information along the way.
       It is a lot like tcpdump except that  it  prints  almost  every  header
       field.

   Options
       -b     Buffer standard output. Useful when you’re redirecting output to
              a file.

       -l     Don’t print link-layer headers.

       -m     Minimal IP/TCP/UDP output.

       -n     Don’t print network-layer headers.

       -p     Print packet payloads.

       -t     Don’t print transport-layer headers.

       -c cnt Terminate after receiving cnt packets.

       -i if  Listen on interface if, e.g., eth0.

       expr   Berkeley packet filter expression.  See tcpdump(8) man page  for
              details and examples.

BUGS

       ICMP and DHCP/BOOTP support is not quite  complete.   L2TP  support  is
       flaky.    RIP  support  is  incomplete  and  SIP/SDP  support  is  very
       rudimentary.
