Hi, try transferring a really small file, such as one that just contains all alphabets on your keyboard typed in that order. Make sure you start the transfer immediately after starting tcpdump and stop tcmpdump as soon as the transfer is finished. That’ll ensure you have a small pcap file.

Let me know if that helps!

Hey we have a potential FAQ for this -

This may help you :slight_smile:

Hope you are running tcpdump only for the interval where you probably get the right packet. I did the same and got the size right without any filters. Just start and stop for exactly the time required. Hope it helps.
