Looking for a piece of software


Hello,

Around a year ago I found a piece of sofware that was a type of packet sniffer. However, it was slightly different in that it only sniffed images and then it displayed them on a window.

Does anyone know what this software is called? I can't find it now.

Thanks!

Right, but the program that I am looking for actually would take the gif file or jpg or whatever and display it on its own window. Not just the packet info, but would actually display the image. As far as I am aware, ethereal does not do that. Correct?
