    tcpdump -K not working


    Welcome,

    I have got tcpdump 3.9.5-2ubuntu1 and I would like to use -K option.
    Unfortunately it is not supported. Do I need install additional packets?
    Is my version to old?

    Regards,
    Christopher

    There is no -K option on my FreeBSD box or my CentOS box either. Where have you used it before, and what does it do?

    I have found it on following website: Manpage of TCPDUMP

    This the description:
    -K
    Don't attempt to verify TCP checksums. This is useful for interfaces that perform the TCP checksum calculation in hardware; otherwise, all outgoing TCP checksums will be flagged as bad.

    Greetings,
