Network protocol analyzers

I'm using Wireshark (used to be ethereal).  Does anyone know any better
protocol analyzers?  Preferably open source.  If you like Wireshark, why
do you like it?

A key logger? At what point are we crossing the line of common decency
towards co-workers?
I realize it is company property and all, but if you log access to
sensitive files and audit these logs do you really need to be more
intrusive?

This is not an attack, more a tagged on question to everyone?
Is keystroke logging commonly accepted by you?

Those are good points.

I would recommend that you put in a keystroke logger program with the
written approval of your upper management on the PCs in question and
then download the logs each day.  That way you are able to create a
forensics "e-Trail" that can be used to confront/counsel/etc. them.  I
would also make sure that you look at your documenation and ensure that
each IT person has signed a document stating that they will not use
their abilities improperly.  Combine those two and you have a means of
pursuing them legally.
