Watch DNS requests

Is there any software that show and log the dns query's from TCPdump or sth like that  on cent os?

We have a cent os server which is just a transparent bridge on UDP 53 port's trafic. So we want to trace the requests on this server from tcpdump is it possible ?

If the requests are truly passing through the box, then tcpdump will capture anything and everything.

You can limit tcpdump to just capturing udp and tcp port 53 to limit the amount of data you capture.

no i want to see sth like tshark result

source ip
destination ip
requested record (like
You can try:

tcpdump -s 0 -t -v -n port 53

This will show you in real time anything for port 53.  It will show source and destination IP address and what the query request and response was.

I assumed you wanted the output saved to a file, so I assumed you were going to use the -w option and write the capture to a file to look at later.
Take the -v out and it may be closer to what you want.  I just by habit  use -v when I am not capturing to a file.
