Publisher's Description

Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer for Unix and Windows. It allows you to examine data from a live network or from a capture file on disk. You can interactively browse the capture data, viewing summary and detail information for each packet. Has several powerful features, including a rich display filter language and the ability to view the reconstructed stream of a TCP session.

Wireshark 0.99.7 has been released. Many security-related vulnerabilities have been fixed.

This release improves the privilege separation between the capture code and interface code. It also lets you filter directly on SNMP OIDs, follow UDP streams, and has improved Vista support.

This software is extraordinary. Open-source, free and give you maximum visibility into pcap files, etc.

highly recommended network analysis tool. For windows platforms however I am still prefering packetyzer (www.packetyzer.com) although it doesn't get much love lately (still based on ethereal).

Broken link?
This project isn't in sourceforge anymore.

And I quote:

"In May of 2006, the original author of Ethereal® went to work for CACE Technologies (best known for WinPcap). Unfortunately, he had to leave the Ethereal® trademarks behind.

This left the project in an awkward position. The only reasonable way to ensure the continued success of the project was to change the name. This is how Wireshark was born.

Wireshark is almost (but not quite) a fork. Normally a "fork" of an open source project results in two names, web sites, development teams, support infrastructures, etc. This is the case with Wireshark except for one notable exception -- every member of the core development team is now working on Wireshark."
