Maybe you want to use cppcap instead of tcpdump. Have a look at sk141412: cppcap - A Check Point Traffic Capture Tool

It uses pcap-filter(7) as syntax and has no hassle with SecureXL.

tcpdump is not a CP software 😉

You may want to check out my 2021 CPX presentation here which summarizes the packet capturing options on Check Point:

https://community.checkpoint.com/fyrhh23835/attachments/fyrhh23835/member-exclusives/484/2/CPX_Preso...

This presentation was derived from my self-guided video series "Max Capture: Know Your Packets" which thoroughly covers all the packet capture tools including tcpdump along with fw ctl zdebug + drop as well.  There are also free updates to the original class available here:
