Re: packet sniffers?

It seems that you are pretty stressed by Perl... :-)

Now seriously, if Perl is too hard for you, don't think that it is the same for absolutely everyone.

or you could avoid using perl...
snort was orig unix. It's a bit of a pain to get going, but it's great after it works.
Also worth checking out is packit and tcpdump.

My programs don't have bugs, they're called randomly added features.

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
