An updated tcpdump package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The tcpdump tool is a command line utility for monitoring network traffic.
- Previously, the "start-time" command-line argument of the tcpslice utility was parsed incorrectly. As a consequence, the utility produced error messages every time the command-line argument was used. With this update, the "start-time" command-line argument is parsed correctly, and an error message is displayed only if "start-time" is defined in an incorrect format.
All users of tcpdump are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
