Why go to the GUI when the command-line capabilities of Tshark or tcpdump may be all you need to capture files to file sets,use a ring buffer,apply capture filters,extract specific fields,export traffic information for analysis in Microsoft Excel,or... you get the idea. In this session,Laura focuses on the methods used to capture local or remote traffic to troubleshoot,secure and optimize a network. Examining rpcapd.exe,Laura explains how to set up a remote host that sends you every little packet you want. Whipping out Tshark,Laura builds some pretty slick little batch files (remember those?) to send to a packet neophyte so you get just the traffic you want. It's 1984 all over again and the command-line rules,eh?
