A packet analyzer is a computer program or a piece of computer hardware that can intercept and log traffic passing over a digital network or part of a network. In this paper, the authors have deployed a new-fangled packet analyzer with a utility of transmitting user-defined packets to sensor nodes for debugging the sensor network system remotely. This system facilitates the basis for advanced debugging methods which is appropriate for the wireless communication standard for sensor networks; it is compatible with IEEE 802.15.4 and is available for remote control by adopting a server-client scheme based on the Ethernet interface.
