wireshark logo


Wireshark is ‘s werelds belangrijkste netwerk protocol analyzer (TCP/IP sniffer). Het laat je verkeer uit een computer netwerk vangen waarin je interactief kunt bladeren, de ontwikkeling gaat verder dankzij de bijdrage van een netwerken uit deskundigen over de hele wereld. Het is een voortzetting van een project dat in 1998 begon.

Features (engels):
