Here is a sample tcpdump command used to capture network traffic with your Linux system:
# tcpdump -i <INTERFACE> -s 65535 -w mypcap.pcap
-i is for the network interface it will listen and capture the traffic. The default is eth0 if this option is not specified.
-s will set the capture byte to its maximum i.e. 65535.
-w will create the pcap file named mypcap.pcap.
With the command above you will be able to save the traffic to a PCAP file and then open it with Wireshark and filter the traffic as needed. To target network packets from a particular source or destination IP address, use
# tcpdump src <SOURCE_IP_ADDRESS>
# tcpdump dst <DESTINATION_IP_ADDRESS>
So, for example, you can run the following;
# tcpdump -i <INTERFACE> -s 65535 src <SOURCE_IP_ADDRESS> -w mypcap.pcap
