SmartSniff - network packet capture

#1 Post by milentechie »

[Moderator note: this is the primary SmartSniff program thread. View database entry


SmartSniff v1.20

Synopsis: SmartSniff allows you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter, and view the captured data as sequence of conversations between clients and servers. You can view the TCP/IP conversations in Ascii mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP.) or as hex dump. (for non-text base protocols, like DNS)
SmartSniff provides 2 methods for capturing TCP/IP packets :
Raw Sockets (Only for Windows 2000/XP or greater): Allows you to capture TCP/IP packets on your network without installing a capture driver. This method has some limitations and problems.
WinPcap Capture Driver: Allows you to capture TCP/IP packets on all Windows operating systems. (Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003) In order to use it, you have to download and install WinPcap Capture Driver from this Web site. (WinPcap is a free open-source capture driver.)
This method is generally the preferred way to capture TCP/IP packets with SmartSniff, and it works better than the Raw Sockets method.

Writes settings to: None

How to extract: Download the ZIP file and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch the program by double-clicking on smsniff.exe.

License: Freeware

System Requirements: Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP

Posted to the database. Thanks!

I still don't like the fact that it writes settings to the registry (which columns to display etc) :(

But assuming one is only going to use it occasionally, I think it is bearable as a portable sniffer.
