Problem with tcpdump filters

Argus passes the filter you provide directly to
libpcap, so if your filter works for tcpdump, it will
work for argus. The problem is that argus supports
two filters, an input filter and an output filter,
and the output filter is specified as an optional string
after the -w option. (see the argus man page description
for the "-w outfile [filter]" option)
So, the way around your situation is this:
argus -dM 1.0 -S 0.01 -I $1 -w my-AF1 - ip==0x28
(probably don't want to generate a management record
100 times a second).
Hope this is useful!!!
