If you're looking for bad-cksum indications, you want the -vvv on the
pretty-printer side, not the data-collection (capture) side.
(tcpdump -w x -s 1500 -i en0 ip host "host" and ip host "world"; tcpdump -r x -vvv -ttt)
mutatis mutandis, for anything different from Sean's original.
Then again, perhaps it was just a glitch in transcription.
