I want to filter with TCPDUMP only incoming and ip v4 packets.

tcpdump -i eth0 inbound and ip -w res.pcap give me incoming packets with ipv4 and ipv6

How can I filter by ipv4 only?

When I specify ip at the end of the command, it gives me only IPv4 packages like this

tcpdump -i eth0 ip

Though I am not sure why the "inbound and ip" part in your command is not a syntax error...

  • its actually the word "ip" at the end. not an actual IP, which I mistakenly thought. thanks, your exact command works.
