Have you guys heard about Microsoft's Packet Sniffer? Microsoft Network Monitor!

Hello All,

In this post i am gonna give an introductory session about the Microsoft's Packet Sniffer that has some unique capabilities that its competitors doesn't have.

Benefits :- 

It can find out the traffic and represents traffic based upon Applications. That means if you are using chrome to access some specific website, it shows very clearly from which application the traffic is being generated, what is the destination and which port TCP/UDP and more info. This can be very helpful if you are trying to find out which application is using which port and that info can be used in various ways like opening or closing them on the firewall if required.

Cons :- 

Crashes alot! Very slow parsers! The GUI is complex.

Despite its Cons, its a good tool to have in your kit and could be a life savior in various cases :)

Here is the free Download Link :-
