Rajesh,

Hi there..

Are you asking to determine the interface that "will" or "is" passing said
traffic?

I think it depends on what you're trying to do- Are you trying to track
an individual src at one given point, or collect some stats/trends on where
various srcs are entering your network?

I.e, for an individual src/dst (maybe you're tracing a DoS, etc..) there are
a number of ways to use filters and other mechanisms to log/count packets
matching some known charachteristics (src/dst, length, etc..)  

There are various ways to do things like this, it depends on what exactly you're
trying to track though.
