Performing a Packet Capture
In this learning activity, you will need to perform a packet capture of web requests from `Client1` (10.0.1.11) to `Server1` (10.0.1.10) and the requisite responses. The resulting file should only contain this data.
Table of Contents
You will need to install tcpdump:
# yum install tcpdump
Begin the Packet Capture
You will want to apply a capture filter so that you're only getting web requests:
# tcpdump port 80 -w capture.pcap
Generate Some Traffic
Since this isn't a public web server, you will need to generate some traffic from
Server1(10.0.1.10). This needs to be done while the
tcpdumpcapture is running.
Cancel the Capture and View the File
After you've generated some requests, you can cancel the running capture and view the file:
tcpdump -r capture.pcap
Move the file to
/root/if it's not there already.
