To be clear: snort is an IDS, not a packet sniffer. It uses packet sniffing
technology, but it is an intrusion detection system by nature and by intent.

Take care,

There should be accessible sniffers for Linux that can run in command line
mode and redirect the results to a file which you can read.

I have used snort, which is a command line packet sniffer which accepts
creating complex rules for filtering. It works under Windows but there may
be a Linux version also. I don't know if snort isn't actually a Unix program

originally...

You can also search on search.cpan.org for "sniffer" and you will find more
modules that could help you, like Net::Packet::Dump for example.

HTH.

This is a bit off topic, but it seems that the people on this list will
know best: my TCP/IP class will soon be working with packet sniffers as
part of a final project, on Ubuntu.  The professor wants me to use Wire
Shark, formerly known as Ethereal.  I may be able to use Windows if
necessary, but the question is whether WireShark will work with Orca
and/or JAWS? If not, is there a sniffer that will work? Thanks!

Have a great day,
Alex
