I am executing the following command in a RH Linux environment (Wireshark 1.6.13 and Red Hat Linux version is 2.6.18-348.12.1.el5.):
I am getting the error message I have pasted below. The command works when I run it on the Windows environment. However since our target environment is Linux, we need it to be working there as well. Is there a different way I need to use the -z switch in a Linux environment?

Just to put an Answer to this question: as Kurt said, that option is not available on that older version of Wireshark/tshark. If you need the "follow" functionality you'll need to use the Wireshark GUI (you could cut-n-paste the "follow TCP stream" output into a text file if needed) or do the tshark work on a different system.
Unfortunately you can't (easily) get a more modern Wireshark on RHEL5 because the Gtk+ version in RHEL5 is too old to support even Wireshark 1.8.
