I'm attempting to capture fibre channel traffic from a Cisco MDS Fibre channel switch via pcap. While attempting to a remote capture I captured the traffic to see why it was failing. Looks like the list interfaces request and reply worked. The authentication worked also. During the remote capture start I got generic updatefilter error 7

I'll upload the trace. Has anyone done this before?
