    Having problems ftp'ing a tcpdump file.

    Hey all,

    Im trying to ftp a capture file that I have created with tcpdump but so far have been unable to.

    Ive run the command tcpdump -i eth1 -s 1500 -w /logs/packets.pcap

    The file is created and data is captured but when I try to ftp this file from the server I am getting a "550 failed to open file" error.

    Not sure what the deal is. Other files in this directory can be copied, just the tcpdump one that I have issue with.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Well as long as tcpdump is writing to the file it will be locked.
