Is there any advantage in displaying hex output? ( -x switch)?
Currently I use tcpdump with the -n -e -s 1514 switches. Does viewing hex have any advantages? Are you viewing the actual encapsulated data when you do this?
Also, is it true that the ascii interpretation of the hex is also shown? I heard the asci after each line of hex, was the hex in ascii (wow does that make sense?)
