Re: Network IP analysis?

A Network General sniffer will do this for you, and it's a really nice
(read expensive) piece of equipment to have.  They go for around $26,000
(someone correct me if I'm wrong... I've never bought one myself).  If
that's out of your price range, there's always sniffer software for your
platform/os.  Also, there's a piece of software for sys V/solaris (forget
which one) that will show you the types of network connections between
machines on your network that runs in X/openwin.  I didn't work with
the program directly, but it laid everything out in a nice chart, and
showed the whole range of traffic types (udp/tcp/etc.)...  I'm sure
someone on the list knows the name of it...
