Python Packet Filter - Pcapy?

16
I'm a newbie to python and for my first project i'm trying to create a packet filter. Having looked around i think pcapy will be the best way, there is a sniffer script available that incorporates a filter function here .. http://oss.coresecurity.com/impacket/sniff.py
I want to filter all SYN packets into a dump file, can anyone tell me how I need to configure the filter string to do this?

Thanks

Just for more info, the following is the documentation from pcapy, Iím trying to find out the syntax I need to use for the bpf compile string and the int filter?
Any help would be appreciated

Bpf compile(linktype, snaplen, filter, optimize, netmask);
int linktype;
int snaplen;
string filter;
int optimize;
int32 netmask;

DESCRIPTION
compile is used to compile the filter into a filter program. snaplen specifies the maximum number of bytes to capture. optimize controls whether optimization on the resulting code is performed. netmask specifies the netmask of the local network.

int filter(packet);
string packet;

DESCRIPTION
filter tests a packet against a compiled filter as returned by pcapy's compile. If the packet is allowed to pass through -1 is returned, otherwise filter returns 0.

Don't know if you still need an answer to this but this is how I do it:

# Create the filter
bpf = pcapy.compile (datalink, 1500, "tcp", 0, 1)

# User the filter
if (bpf.filter(data) == 0):
echo "filtered"
else:
echo "not filtered"
