To add a little more:
Sent, time, _node_, MAC trace, no-error, packet#, type, bytes, [(in hex)
duration field (0 µs), receiver address, transmitter address and
ether-type], -------, [(in decimal) IP source address:source port (255),
IP destination address (-1):destination port (255), IP time-to-live (32)
and next hop (0)]
