show a brief help message
Etherape will use /etc/ethers if there is one. If not, it will try to reverse lookup the ip address.
IMPORTANT! It is particularly important when running in ethernet mode to have the ethernet address of your router in /etc/ethers. If not, your router will
have as name whatever IP address it was forwarding traffic from when it was first heard.
