Mark,
        You should take a look at Ethereal (www.ethereal.com).  It is
one of the most popular open source network protocol analyzers.  We use
it to look at packet traffic from HVAC controllers.  You have the
ability to view multiple network protocols and reassemble packets to
examine at their contents.  

The program features are listed here
(http://www.ethereal.com/introduction.html#features).  

Ethereal has support for multiple platforms if you run Linux, UNIX,
Microsoft, etc. 

I would highly recommend that you check it out. 

Good Luck,

Adam

Subject: Packet capture, analysis, regeneration

Has anyone heard of any tools or products that can capture packets,
analyze
them, provide a report on the analysis, and then reassemble to show the
content?

What I have been tasked to do is capture the packets that are generated
by a
custom application, analyze them in terms of size, utilization, and
port,
display a report with the values, and then reassemble them to see if I
can
view the content of the entire stream.

Thanks,
Mark
