Re: analyzing packets

Hi

Ethereal does a pretty good job on most protocols, and has a nice GUI
interface for both *nix  and windows, which allows one to mine down through
the contents of the packet.   Tcpdump can also do a pretty good job  when
used with the -v (verbose) flag.   Your choice of tool really depends what
youa re looking for.

Regards,

Barry

Subject: analyzing packets


What tools do most of you use to break down a packet. I'm able to catch
packets with tcpdump or etheral but from there I'm not sure what to do.
Does
anyone recommend utils or low level white papers on the subject?
