[Pdns-users] PDNS tools

Hi friends,

After successfully compiling pdns tools such as dnsscope, dnsreplay and
dnswasher I stumbled upon running one of them.
I generated tcpdump file with tcpdump command:

#tcpdump > dumpfile

#/usr/local/bin/dnsscope ./dumpfile 
Fatal: PCAP file ./dumpfile has bad magic 333a3031, should be a1b2c3d4

What is this magic and why is it wrong?
