I have the following shell script
$cat capture.sh TIME=$(date +"%H-%M-%d-%m-%y") IP="126.96.36.199" PREFIX=$TIME$IP tshark -f "udp" -i eth0 -w /root/captures/$PREFIX.cap& pid=$! sleep 2m kill $pid
it runs fine when i execute it from shell.
but when i add it to the cron tab nothing happens.
my crontab entry : 1 */2 * 2 3,4,5 sh /root/capture.sh
shows that the command has executed .
but nothing happens. i have set executable permission for "all" for capture.sh and write permission for "all" for /root/captures directory.
Thanks in advance
