Capturing network traffic in pcap format

Post by Forrest »

So, we have some interns working on projects this summer. There job is basically described as "make cool stuff". The second project has come out of the lab and has a write up over at the NetBurner Learn Site.

This project sets up your NetBurner as a packet sniffer. The netburner module will listen to all traffic on the network and generate a pcap file. This pcap file can be thrown in to and analyzed in an application such as Wireshark.

A full write-up of the application, plus source, can be viewed on the article:
