# Is it possible to install tcpdump on an Arduino 101?

Currently architecting a side-project idea I have that requires tcpdump on an Arduino 101. This will be my first project and just wondering if this is possible or if maybe I should get a Raspberry Pi?

I won the Arduino 101 at a hackathon so I already have it and I think I need to order an Ethernet Shield but want to ask before I order parts.

Update: hrm, it appears I will need to do the packet sniffing with possibly libpcap. Found example here https://www.tcpdump.org/sniffex.c
