Linux network protocol analyzer software


I'm looking for Linux network protocol analyzer software.
I already know Ethereal, but I'm looking for some others.

Does anybody can give me some URL's of that kind of software?

Thanks in advance!

ettercap is good, but very (too?) powerful (so very complex)

tcpdump is good to listen on a network interface but you will not see the content of packets.

iptraf is a cool little ncurse tools that allow you to see connection and trafic over your network. But it won't let you browse into packets.

thanks a lot!

But ethereal is the only software available that can actually view the data logs? Or maybe others?
