Syntax error in "monitor traffic interface filter"
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


In VyOS 1.2.0 RC3 the following error occures:

vyos@vyos-test01:~$ monitor traffic interface eth1 filter "host"
tcpdump: syntax error

But not all filters are affected. The following works:

vyos@vyos-test01:~$ monitor traffic interface eth1 filter "icmp"

The same filter in tcpdump works:

sudo tcpdump -i eth1 "host"

Indeed, the original script only took the first word, rather than all words after "filter".
