Wireshark: Remote Packet Capture, bit of Security

Wireshark/Ethereal is one of the best open source tools we have. I don’t think there will be individuals working in Networking domain (especially into IDS/IPS, Firewalls etc.) and don’t know Wireshark/tcpdump. Please I wanna see u guys/gals 😉

There are many features available in Wireshark, we are going to focus on remote packet capture.

Need Wireshark Version 1.4.2 with the new WinPcap available inbuilt with it. Install this on bothe the machines, where you are going to take capture (client) and on the machine where we want to sniff the traffic(server). On Server we need to start “Remote Packet Capture Protocol v.0 (experimental)” service, which will open TCP Port 2002 on the Server.
