Spotlight: Microsoft Network Monitor 3.3

In depth view

This is what an in-depth view of an individual frame looks like. Because this is an HTTP transmission, and there is a parser for HTTP, you can see how the display can turn the data into a useful tree. This is a great feature because it lets you rapidly locate the exact information that you are looking for.

I was having problems using the IPv4.sourceaddress == (address) to filter items. I ended up using "Property.Destination.contains("ip address here") and property.Source.contains("ip address here") I thought that I would be able to click on columns to sort by the different headers, but that doesn't appear to work. Over all this appears to be a pretty good packet capture utility. Bill
