Hi All,

I need to see the actual data that is moving between my 10/100 wired network.

I need something like M$oft's network Monitor 3.?? which I believe allows setting filters to capture the raw data in the packets, but it is not available for Vista Home premium.

Anyone know of a freeware, trialware, shareware or commercial program that will allow me to look at the actual packet data?

Thanks

Dave

Thanks Squashman,

I also stumbled onto a very simple freeware program called What is Transferring"
http://www.wfshome.com/wit.htm

It did all that I needed. It was a one-shot thing an while a little clunky, it told me what I needed to know.

I installed the two you suggested and I thank you for the links and here are comments on those. The WireShark looks VERY impressive in what it can do.

NASniffer is difficult t use and pretty clunky.
WireShark is huge overkill and a steep learning curve.

Just to be sure, you're talking about capturing data on the network or between a PC and the network?
