    Packet Sniffing


    I would like to monitor a few ports on a given IP
    address. Is there any good tools for logging and
    displaying the data? Right now we are testing out
    Sniffit, but the output files do not appear to be too
    user-friendly. Any suggestions?

    I use tcpdump and it should be fine for what you want to do, dont know if its output is *more* user friendly than sniffit.

    You might also want to have a look at snort, it is very usefull.

    We ended up purchasing an intrustion detection
    sniffer from CA (not cheap). The "big wigs" had
    the need for human readable access to the data
    and we had a very short turnaround time.

    Thanks for your input, folks.
