I want to watch my network for DHCP servers, so I use dhcpcd -T $interface to dump the response of the DHCP server. How do I tell dhcpcd to display all the responses (normally the official dhcp server is the fastest one but I want to capture for other, slower ones)

Thanks in advance

You're going to need something like tcpdump or (better) dhcpdump for this.
