TCPDUMP

Analyzer and sniffer to check the packets sent through network"
A review by John

The network is indispensable in an environment that uses multiple computers because it enables them to connect together and share resources. However, network administrators who are curious about the types of communications going through their hardware can use this program to sniff the network to discover fine details about traffic on the network.

This program is a clone of the tcpdump command that is native to POSIX-compliant operating systems such as UNIX and Linux. It brings the complete features of the native Unix command to the Windows platform. After launching the application, it opens a terminal interface and starts sniffing the data that is being transmitted and received through the network adapter interface. The application provides the user with many command switch options which can help fine-tune the data that is captured by the application. This feature is useful when the administrator wants to inspect a specific protocol, so the program monitors only the port in question.

Although the information the program provides is in real-time, the user can still record the data to a log file and inspect later. This application does a perfect job of analyzing the network traffic that passes through a network interface.

It is part from network monitoring category and is licensed as shareware for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platform and can be used as a free trial until the trial period will end. The TCPDUMP demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions compared with the full version.
