Subject: tcptrace does not support tcpdump input file

To it who may concern,

I have compiled the libpcap-0.6.2 library and tcptrace 6.0.1. My problem
is when I input tcpdump file to tcptrace, eg: tcptrace -R filename.dmp,
it says:"Ostermann's tcptrac -- vrsion 6.0.1 -- Mon 3, 2001
unknown iput fil format
supporte Input Fil Formants:

Snoop -- Distributed with Solaris
etherpeek -- Mac sniffer program
Net Metrix -- Commercial program from HP
ns -- network simulator from LBL
netscout -- NetScout Manager format

Looks like The tcptrace on my solairs7 machine does not suport tcpump
file format. Please give me some advice.

Many Thanks

Jenny Wu
