What I mislike on "any" is that it also will be capturing on loopback.
So remember to disable the appropriate rules. Unfortunately there is
some real traffic on the Internet claiming to be from Since
the lo intarface has no MAC there is no to me known possibility to blend
this traffic out.

Additionally the promisc mode will not work with "-i any".

So beware.
