Displays incoming/outgoing ethernet packets.

Overview

A simple tool for visualizing all incoming and outgoing Ethernet packets.

I wanted to learn how to read raw Ethernet packets on Mac OS X. After going through several examples, I ended up writing this little piece of software. It uses the Berkeley Packet Filter device to read all incoming and outgoing Ethernet packets. I have wrapped the whole thing in a Cocoa GUI using the new bindings features of Mac OS 10.3.

Features:

  • Reads all incoming/outgoing Ethernet packets
  • Displays the packet content in hexadecimal/ascii
  • Finds any string in packet
  • Filters packets
  • Dynamic display width
  • Save/load packets to disk

What's new in Ethernal

  • export packets to text file (multiple selection supported in packet list)
  • new preferences panel allowing to create additionnal protocol information
  • display protocol name
  • display source and destination IP address (value and resolved name)
  • selection is preserved when packets are added to the list
  • deselect a row if the row was selected
  • last selected interface is now restored
  • stop button now correctly stop the sniffer
  • horizontal scroll is displayed in the packet content view

nice job, though it doesn't really like stopping much. it appears to still be collecting the packets and listing them as 'dropped' would be nice if it 'stayed' when you've clicked a packet. it currently automatically scrolls through them so you can't actually read a packet without it zipping out from under you.
