Cmon............

Even though this is in off topic, 'tis a rather lame question.

Ethereal is the one.
Now start using Google or something.

Ethereal is now called Wireshark. The old Ethereal site doesn't mention this and is no longer being updated.

@esther: I don't understand, as I can see Wireshark is not a shareware both Ethereal and Wireshark are released under the GPL, maybe i'm blind...
@wtbw: Btw. the new site mention that wireshark is the old ethereal.

Where you getting your information from esther?

Wireshark == Ethereal == GPL
http://www.wireshark.org/

Even if it was a commercial product, no one said anything about cracking it. It was a good reply from a member who is really above that kind of thing anyway.

Personally I'm glad for the heads up and I'm running Wireshark right now, as I remember the old Ethereal didn't run on XP.

Cheers,
Kayaker

Your sarcasm meter is broken

For something a bit humorous, read this:

Ethereal as translated from English to... English.
