|Summary : A free ethernet protocol analyzer / sniffer
|Description : |
K.ARP.SKI (karpski) is an ethernet protocol analyzer / sniffer. Its
abilities as a sniffer or scanner are limited, but this sniffer is much
easier to use than other popular sniffers such as tcpdump. In addition,
there is a protocol definition file in which other protocols can be added.
Karpski may also be used to launch programs against addresses on your local
network and as a local network intrusion tool. Plus, it\'s free with source.
Its display is an Xwindow display. This was a design decision based on my
need to display many windows simultaneously. Console mode would just not
cut it. I chose the Gtk display library because it\'s proven, portable and
free. You may not like my choice; the source is included.
This program was originally based on my desire to detect someone plugging an
unauthorized computer into a LAN. It did this originally by looking at ARP
packets. This is where the arp in karpski comes from.
