    detect network traffic

    Hi,

    We have a program that runs inhouse on a windows XP host. It collects information from all the computers on our inhouse network. It receives a standard post such as

    http://(your server name:port)/cgi-bin/auth.cgi

    Is there a program that I can run that will tell me the data that is being sent back and forth? I tried a program called analogX that is a sniffer but it would not give me inhouse traffic only traffic to the internet.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    Perhaps Ethereal would work:

    I installed it and it did capture windows messaging but not my traffic. I would do a simple post to localhost and it does not see that.

    Any other ideas?

    Ethereal captures everything sent or received.

    Try again

    Step-by-step:

    1- Capture, Start click -> [OK]

    2- Go in your browser than send the form

    3- Stop the capture

    4- type: HTTP in the filter editbox than [APPLY] you'll get only what's http related.

    5- Right-click the proper message than [Follow TCP stream]


    Spending some time learning this incredible tool is a big plus.

    Is your traffic just from/to localhost?
