Packet Sniffer (Open Source please)

Recommended Posts

Ok i have been using protowall, and i have heard that it like a packet sniffer but it only scans the header.

So now i want to get a real packet sniffer for absolute protection. But, which one? I would prefer an open source sniffer.

BTW anyone here know how to get protowall to work in Vista?


And to give back to the forum here is my list for the best security tools:


1.) Avast Anti-Virus

2.) Spybot Search and Destroy

3.) Protowall

4.) Super Anti Spyware


Thanks for reading. Now please respond.

Further to what anyweb said, Ethereal is now called Wireshark.


You can grab a Windows download of it from here.
