It works :( All 6060 bytes are saved.

I'm on Mac OS X, so tcpdumps:

I to freebsd
freebsd to me
I to linux
linux to me

However, I'm not sure it's helpful. I mean you can't look inside a
packet, because it was encrypted. Headers and packet size depends on
many factors. For example, if you compare linux and freebsd tcpdumps
here, you'll see that freebsd ignore packet's checksums and linux has
tcp timestamps turned off, and so on.
