Wireshark is a free program to analyze the network, the program formerly known as Ethereal network protocol analyzer.
Wireshark is used by most networks worldwide experts, this program is very complete for a network analyzer.
features of “Wireshark”:
Â· Data can be captured “off the wire” from a live network connection, or read from a capture file.
Â· Wireshark can read capture files from tcpdump (libpcap), NAI’s Sniffer (compressed and uncompressed), Sniffer Pro, NetXray, Sun snoop and atmsnoop, Shomiti/Finisar Surveyor, AIX’s iptrace, Microsoft’s Network Monitor, Novell’s LANalyzer, RADCOM’s WAN/LAN Analyzer, HP-UX nettl, i4btrace from the ISDN4BSD project, Cisco Secure IDS iplog, the pppd log (pppdump-format), the AG Group’s/WildPacket’s EtherPeek/TokenPeek/AiroPeek, or Visual Networks’ Visual UpTime. It can also read traces made from Lucent/Ascend WAN routers and Toshiba ISDN routers, as well as the text output from VMS’s TCPIPtrace utility and the DBS Etherwatch utility for VMS. Any of these files can be compressed with gzip and Ethereal will decompress them on the fly.
Â· Live data can be read from Ethernet, FDDI, PPP, Token-Ring, IEEE 802.11, Classical IP over ATM, and loopback interfaces (at least on some platforms; not all of those types are supported on all platforms).
Â· Captured network data can be browsed via a GUI, or via the TTY-mode “tethereal” program.
Â· Capture files can be programmatically edited or converted via command-line switches to the “editcap” program.
Â· 602 protocols can currently be dissected
