Description

Wireshark, formerly known as Ethereal, is a network traffic analyzer, also called a sniffer, originally designed for *nix operating systems. An adaptation for windows is also available. Wireshark can capture network frames for analysis using libpcap in *nix systems and WinPcap in Windows. Combining support for hundreds of protocols and a powerful filtering system, Wireshark is an indispensable tool for network administrators.
