Exercise 4.1 - How did you ping while using tcpdump?

I'm just wondering what way others have completed exercise 4.1 - ping while using tcpdump.


First time around I set tcpdum to monitor eth0 and then pinged from second client.


Second time I set tcpdump as a background task and then started ping.

If I set ping as a background task it would not allow me to complete a command.


sudo tcpdump -i lo proto ICMP &

ping localhost
