Actually, that'd be on the client.  You only want to see traffic between
the client and server.  You will probably have a switch (not a hub) so the
switch will filter out any traffic to other nodes.  On the server side,
you'd see all client traffic.

The other way to do it (from the server side) is:

# tcpdump -i <iface> -s0 -w capture.cap host and host <clientIP>

...and yes, if en0 is the name of the ethernet interface then that's what 
you'd put in for <iface>.
