WinDump (tcpdump for Windows)

A command line application design for monitoring tcpip packet. Very useful if you want to see your network statistic. Sometimes I like to monitor my network because of a suspicious activities and this is the program to use.

Some useful commands :

  • -w for dumping tcpip to a file
  • -r for reading tcpip dump file

Some people use this also use this kind of tools to monitor traffic, maybe ethereal is better but this one is much simpler for use and very powerful if you know how to use it.

There are a lot of networking tools based on tcpdump, so you should at least owed it to yourself to look at it.
