    Package description:
      Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic. Tcpdump can
      capture and display the packet headers on a particular network interface or
      on all interfaces. Tcpdump can display all of the packet headers, or just

      Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network monitoring.
      Libpcap can provide network statistics collection, security monitoring and
      network debugging. Since almost every system vendor provides a different
