Does tcpdump3.4a6 work on Solaris x86 2.6 . Whenever I run tcpdump I get the following error:

 tcpdump: recv_ack: bind error 0x1 (what does this mean?)
 
 I am trying to capture packets on the ppp0 interface .
 
 All I did was the
following:

ftp ftp.ee.lbl.gov
get tcpdump.tar.Z
get libpcap.tar.Z
gzip -d < libpcap.tar.Z | tar xvf -
gzip -d < tcpdump.tar.Z | tar xvf -
cd libpcap-0.4a6
./configure
make
cd ../tcpdump-3.4a6
./configure
make
su
./tcpdump

Many thanks

Bill

snoop doesn't seem to support ppp0. It says Mac type=9 not supported
