Wireshark (known as Ethereal until a trademark dispute in Summer 2006) is a fantastic open source multi-platform network protocol analyzer. It allows you to examine data from a live network or from a capture file on disk. You can interactively browse the capture data, delving down into just the level of packet detail you need. Wireshark has several powerful features, including a rich display filter language and the ability to view the reconstructed stream of a TCP session. It also supports hundreds of protocols and media types. A tcpdump-like console version named tshark is included. One word of caution is that Wireshark has suffered from dozens of remotely exploitable security holes, so stay up-to-date and be wary of running it on untrusted or hostile networks (such as security conferences).

Wireshark is a powerful,informative,fast,reliable,free and one of the most old and famous tool for sniffing (packet capture) - Go Deep
I use it frequently to view network traffic on my system.
Wireshark is an amazing piece of kit which has been used by cybersecurity and hacking enthusiasts for many years now it is an excellent tool for sniffing connections and is used by both black hat hackers and white hats for penetration testing you can find documentation on it at www.hacks.icu
Wireshark is amazing if you want to analyse and monitor traffic on your network it always shows you all the packets :D
Essential tool. I need a degree to understand everything but I'm taking it day by day as a hobbyist.
It has helped me realize a lot of potential attack vectors on my web server and helped verify that they've been dealt with. I've gained a lot of knowledge by using this tool.
Good tool ! !
Wireshark provides much of the same type of troubleshooting and analysis of more expensive packet sniffers.
Best ever tool to listen to traffic local, a real wifi hijacker.
Very powerful tool and a lot of valuable information for hackers and network admins.
I totally agree with everyone here. It's a great app for network troubleshooting and security. Thank's to all concerned.
Muhammad in the desciption you can see 'For downloads and more information, visit the Wireshark homepage.' its link to http://www.wireshark.org/ or search at google: https://www.google.es/search?q=wireshark
I hope this can help you.
Wireshark is an invaluable resource! Not only is the GUI interface very user friendly, the DOS counterpart, dumpcap is also really nice, and stateless. I've used it under Windows and Linux, for wired and wireless networks. Add on the Airpcap device and your radiotap is now integrated with a very powerful Sniffer.
linux bits can be grabbed directly from distributions..
Agree with the other posters, it doesn't seem like wireshark supports linux.
Anyone got a link to the "linux" bits?
Perhaps I'm missing something. When I goto the wireshark website I don't find anything for linux even though your page says it runs natively on linux. I find source code but nothing else. Is there actually a version for linux or is that a mistake? Thanks. :)
Makes for great traffic analysis under any circumstance. A must have.
Can someone please explain the differences between Wireshark and Snort.
Good Wireshark but boy its making my life easy to explore more n more, Great Tool
Some weeks ago I installed wireshark without success. With your guide I was able to get it work.
thank you..thank you..thank you..thank you..thank you..thank you..thank you.. for making visualize pakets
I agree with the above, Wireshark is a must have.
The best sniffer. Thank you for this big security guide ....
The Best Ever Sniffer, could do my job without it !!!
Would be lost without it. From SPAN to sniffing to using with GNS3, this is an absolute must for every network engineer regardless of experience or skill.
This is an amazing, feature rich, mature and highly useful tool for troubleshooting a wide variety of network problems. The Voip tools are an especially nice component, providing a way to handle an otherwise very tedious process. I would give it ten stars if I could. Thanks to everyone who soo much hard work into this project.
new to Wireshark but boy its making my life easy to explore more n more, Great Tool. Bravo
Simply the best
the swiss army for network troubleshooting and analysis.
As a firewall engineer this tool combined with tcpdump makes life so much easier for troubleshooting issues. Not only that the decoding is amazing!
Definitively a key application in most any networking role. A must have!
This is by far one of the most important tools for someone that is doing security work. I utilize this tool on every engagement I work, and for learning about new protocols. This is the "Don't leave home without it!"
