Snoop works well:


# snoop -o /tmp/outfile -s 1518 tcp port 23


However, LMS comes with a sniffer built in. You can find it in Device Center > Tools > Packet Capture.

And even though I didn't say it, Wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org) can be used to analyze the sniffer files from both snoop, and the LMS built-in sniffer.
