  • Capture packets on a specific network interface:

snoop -d {{e1000g0}}

  • Save captured packets in a file instead of displaying them:

snoop -o {{path/to/file}}

  • Display verbose protocol layer summary of packets from a file:

snoop -V -i {{path/to/file}}

  • Capture network packets that come from a hostname and go to a given port:

snoop to port {{port}} from host {{hostname}}

  • Capture and show a hex-dump of network packets exchanged between two IP addresses:

snoop -x0 -p4 {{ip1}} {{ip2}}
