Network Capture

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

I had an issue with some servers communicating and so I put wireshark on both machines and I was able to trak it down to the routing that the network packets were taking. I was able to take this information to our networking team, they analyzed the data and made a change to a firewall and now everything is working. Wireshark is a great tool and I would recommend it to you if you think you have a network related issue. Get it at

    Microsoft's Network Monitor 3.2 is also a great tool for capturing directly on servers. Capture using netmon & then take to a machine running Wireshark for analysis. The two tools together can help resolve many issues.
