SmartSniff 1.31

Captures TCP/IP packets and view the captured data as sequence of conversations
SmartSniff will allow users you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter and view the captured data as sequence of conversations between servers and clients.

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.

Version 1.31:
* Added support for Microsoft Network Monitor driver (Under Windows 2000/XP).
Version 1.30:
* New option: Only display TCP/IP statistic, do not store the captured data in file.
* New option: Retrieve process information while capturing packets.
* In 'Load Packets Data From File', you can now choose to load tcpdump/libpcap file saved by Ethereal or by other capture programs.
* A tooltip is displayed when a string in a column is longer than the column length.
* When running SmartSniff in the first time, the first found network adapter with IP address is now automatically selected. (In previous versions, the user had to select an adapter in order to start capturing)
