    You speak browser?
    As you surf the Internet, your PC / Browser is sent (and sends) packets of information - LOTS of them.

    Ever wonder what's inside them?
    Want to see how a crawler "sees" your site?
    Want to see what a parasite watches (and sends back and forth)?
    Like to take things apart and see how they work?
    Ever troubleshoot networks?
    Ever want to see what info an app sends and receives?
    Ever want to see what goes on via that connection to your PC?

    This little tool will let you look inside without taking anything apart.
    If you're the geek / gector type, check it out.
    If you're not that type, this will be incredibly and mind-blowingly boring and a misguided use of your leisure time.

    Either way, your call. Have fun.

    AnalogX's PacketMon (Packet Monitor):
    http://www.analogx.com/contents/down...twork/pmon.htm


    PS - It's freeware and it contains no spyware or parasites. I have used it for years - mostly to troubleshoot network setups, but also to tap into parasite apps and to just geek off learning how things work.

    Thanks

    I love free tools. I needed a packet sniffer & this looks pretty good.

    For real Geeks that one sure is a snooper sniffer, under the covers, when on perp patrol for who cut the wind. Everything right down to a skidmark DNA kit.

    Might be a great tool... but when I opened it Norton gave me a message that it contained a virus creation tool. I let Norton kill it and then I immediately deleted the downloaded files.

    Damn if it generates a trojan horse virus then this one becomes a bicycle seat sniffer.

    You believe everything Norton tells you?

    The whole app after install, including folders and 10k readme file is 224k.
    Many webpages are bigger than this.

    But hey, it matters not to me. If Norton says its bad, most should run.
    Me, it just makes it more interesting.

    Disclaimer - I can't prove or disprove that what tkmurphhk said about Norton means this thing is dangerous or not - so I'd recommend you run away. Err on the side of caution. Be boring. Get in your hole. Fear the mention of the word virus. Look out for trojans. On your deathbed, thank yourself and remember, you listened to the crossing guards and never swam after a meal and the world was a better place because of it.

    And just to prove I'm not promoting the virus-laden PacketMon product for gain or something, here's another company that makes a world-class sniffer: http://www.ethereal.com/introduction.html

    It's the one that the software programmers that I know use. And it's also free. It's got so many dag gummed features that I find it MUCH harder to use.

    Don't tell Mom you're sniffing packets - she'll get the truant officer on ya.

    A trick commonly employed by trojan horse virus creation tools.
    Be careful.

    Sure I do! I believe everything they say.

    Like it's bad to display CJ's cookies and banners on our website, that's why they do us the favor of blocking them.

    They just don't want us to get infected with more sales from CJ.

    Proxomitron is a fun tool for viewing headers too. You can also define all kinds of filters.
