Spotlight: Microsoft Network Monitor 3.3

Conversations

Here, you can see on the left how Microsoft Network Monitor organizes the "conversations." In this particular view, we see that Internet Explorer has three processes making connections. The one I selected has made connections to two separate IP addresses, and within the connection I opened, we see one "conversation." In the center of the screen are displayed all of the packets in the currently selected portion of the tree (including sub-items). In this case, I have drilled down to view only the HTTP connections to 65.55.11.218.
