Re: [vox-tech] packet sniffer help



If you want a graphical one Ethereal is really nice.  I alternate
between that, tcpdump, and ngrep.  Be aware that you may not be
able to sniff on a switched network unless you are the source or
destination of the packets.

Since I am usually only talking one protocol at a time with our
controllers the following works pretty good.

ngrep -i eth1 host 10.10.6.103
tcpdump -i eth1 host 10.10.6.103
