identify a network packet


Hi... i need help with something really tricky.... I need to specify uniquely every network packet.. This means that i must use something from the ip header in order to make this discretion. Do u have something to suggest me?

Hi,

To get detailed information about network packets, including among other things header information, you can use:

tcpdump (commandline tool)
ethereal (graphical tool).

Both have a lot of options/possibilities, see manpages for details.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

I believe his question is if you're trying to find out what / where headers are being added to specific packets.

Ethereal is the one I recommend, it's more efficient and can help you identify certain kinds of traffic almost instantly. Plus it's color oriented organization, for us lazy people.
