Packet filter to watch all IP packets
DATE: August 25, 1999
This packet filter will show all packets arriving at or passing through the PortMaster (TM).
This packet trace is useful when trying to figure out why a connection is NOT idling out. RIP packets (UDP/520) are considered idle traffic and will not keep a link up if the link is configured to drop due to lack of traffic.
BIG NOTE: If you are telnetting to the PortMaster you NEED to filter out your own telnet traffic on TCP port 23 or all you will see is the cascading effect of your own output.
