MacSniffer is a front end to the built-in 'tcpdump' packet sniffer on Mac OS X. MacSniffer allows you to view all of the traffic on a network connection, such as ethernet.MacSniffer includes a filter editing interface and a filter library to easily construct and reuse packet filters to view a subset of all the traffic on the connection, such as just that destined for a specific host or port.You can choose the level of detail you want captured, from just the minimal packet headers (showing source and destination hosts and ports) up to a full hex and ASCII dump of the packet contents.MacSniffer can be useful for diagnosing many network more...

Why is this app in a Stuffit archive? (And not even a .sitx file?) Stuffit hasn't been the standard for Mac downloads since Mac OS 9. I no longer have anything that can open Stuffit files, and I'm certainly not going to download Expander for this. Any developer worth his/her salt should know that a zip file or a disk image are the way to go these days, and have been for some time.

Far better than any beta software I've ever seen, lets me see exactly what is happening on the home network. This app will works beautifully with the 802.11b driver from IOxperts (used for Windows-only 802.11 PC cards), something that another sniffer I tried would not do. If you want to learn about networking and you are on your private home network, there are plenty of learning opportunities for curious people who try this software. When I say "your private home network," maybe I need to say this like I'm your dad -- do NOT use this app on someone else's network (go learn what promiscuous mode is, and then you'll understand why the BOFH who runs your network will come looking for your head on a pike). Great for folks who are new to running a home network and want to evolve into a BOFH. One mark short of a perfect score because it lacks the feature of "reassembling" packets like an open source sniffer whose name eludes me at the moment. If Apple had an admin/server resource kit like Microsoft has for Windows, an app like this would definitely be included.
