etherape graphical network traffic browser

etherape [ m operating mode ] [ i interface ] [ f filter ] [ r inputfile ] [ n ] [ d ] [ F ] [ N color ] [ L color ] [ T color ] z ]

etherape is a network traffic browser. It displays network activity graphically. It uses GNOME libraries as its user interface, and libpcap, a packet capture
and filtering library.

These options can be supplied to the command:

d, diagram only
don't display any node text identification

f, filter
set capture filter

glade file
uses the named libglade file to load interface instead of the default.

i, interface
set interface to listen to

l, node limit
sets the maximum number of node visible

m, mode
set mode of operation (default is lowest level for current device)

max delay
caps timestamps to the provided delay when replaying a capture file.

n, numeric
don't convert addresses to names

r, replay file
sets input file to replay

?, help
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.
