Strange that it would work the other way for an older version. Oh well, works fine now. Thanks!

You need to put the filter in quotes so that the OS sees it as 
one word:
tshark -f "`cat /path/to/my_filter`"

should do the trick. Just tried it myself:

[email protected] ~
$ cat filter
host 10.31.103.64 or
host 10.31.100.254

[email protected] ~
$ tshark -f `cat filter`
tshark: Capture filters were specified both with "-f" and with additional command-line arguments

[email protected] ~
$ tshark -f "`cat filter`"
Capturing on eth0
0 packets captured

[email protected] ~
$


Hope this helps, cheers,


Sake
