Installing the Packages for
Photon OS includes the following networking tools:
tcpdump. A networking tool that captures and analyzes packets on a network interface.
tcpdumpis not available with the minimal version of Photon OS but available in the repository. The minimal version includes the
iproute2tools by default.
You can install
tcpdumpand its accompanying package
libpcap, a C/C++ library for capturing network traffic, by using
tdnf install tcpdump
netcat. A tool to send data over network connections with TCP or UDP. This tool is not included in either the minimal or the full version of Photon OS. But since
netcatfurnishes powerful options for analyzing, troubleshooting, and debugging network connections, you might want to install it. To install `netcat', run the following command:
tdnf install netcat
