Viewing and recording packets using tshark

This time, I’m writing this down so I don’t have to keep looking it up. To display some packet info to the screen while writing a network capture to a file, include the -P option (older versions of tshark used -S)

2021-04-18 13:58:58 [lisa@server ~]# tshark -f "udp port 123" -w /tmp/ntpd.cap -P
Running as user "root" and group "root". This could be dangerous.
