Re: help with tcpshow

Never mind, I found a src patch that was submitted about 3 months ago by Chris K.

I always hate when I read the archives and there is no answer at the end of a thread so...

In case anyone is interested in how I did it, you type 'make' to get the source files, then edit the distfile 'tcpshow.1' and replace all instances of minDecode with minHdrDecode. Then you can type make IGNOREFILES=tcpshow.1 in order to skip the checksum verification on that file. Then a regular make install && make clean worked fine.

I'm running tcpshow from ports on a 3.4-stable box, I can't get the tool to dump the data only using the -minDecode option. I try running the command exactly as it's shown in the man page, but I get errors complaining about unknown cli flag. Any ideas on how to fix this?

(I chose to display one packet only so you could see the command complete.)

***Error: Unknown command line flag
