Tools to capture network traffic

Hi,

I'm looking for freeware tools which run on windows platform for capturing network traffic out of an interface and then tell that which type for traffic uses how much bandwidth of the interface. for e.g HTTP uses x%, Telnet use y%

Best free tool around is EtherReal:

http://www.ethereal.com/

However, keep in mind that: A fool with a tool is still a fool!

I'm NOT implicating that you might be a fool of course but rather that using this kind of program requires some insight in matters by the user.

Regards,

Leo

Hi,

Note that Ethereal has been superceded by Wireshark:

Also - check out ntop.

Using the capture that you get from Ethereal/Wireshark it will display the data in a very pretty way.

Check it out here:-

www.ntop.org - there is a windows version.
