Wireless Packet Re-assembly Tool


Im testing on my home network and i was wondering if anyone
knows if their is a tool that can re-assemble sniffed wireless
packets and update a browser in real time so you can actually
watch a computer as it surfs the net.Seems like it would be
a neat trick.

Hi prompt,

If you want to watch a computer whilst it surfs the net then just use VNC! I haven't heard of a program that does this, mainly because it would involve separation of packets as not all would be related to surfing the web and some packets would simply not have the information to re-assemble it into a web page. It would be quite complex and I dont think there's sufficient benefit to warrant coding up a program to do this.

You can try driftnet. It will sniff for images.
