Comment 2 Tomasz "CeDeROM" CEDRO 2020-05-02 12:24:38 UTC
Hello world :-)

The problem seems to be with IF UP and IF IP assignment:
* Onboard Ethernet can tcpdump after ifconfig up (no IP assigned).
* USB Ethernet needs to have IP assigned in addition to ifconfig up to tcpdump.
* Setting ifconfig em/ue ip also brings the interface up without "up" parameter!!!

1. Onboard Intel - looks like it needs to be only up, no IP assigned tcpdumps packets.
