i use tcpdump to capture packet.
#tcpdump -c 10000 -s 1500 -w ip6.pcap -nvvi em2 ip6
#tcpdump -s 1500 -nvv -w tcp6.pcap -r ip6.pcap tcp
#bro -r tcp6.pcap

1231818666.514747 weird: spontaneous_FIN

there are no *.log files (conn.log, etc).

#tcpdump -w multicast.pcap -c 100000 -s 1500 -nvvi em2 ip6 multicast
#bro -r multicast.pcap
