Question Network packet capture


How do I capture packets on my network using Linux? I have RedHat 7.2.

I thought I could use 'snoop', but, apparently not. I looked through the manual, but, since snoop isn't what I'm looking for, I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

Thanks

You have several options. The common choices are tcpdump, ethereal, and snort.

Ethereal is a fairly good sniffer that can capture packets on your LAN.
