Re: Let's talk about Distance Sniffing/Remote Visibility

Another commercial product to consider may be netIntercept from Sandstorm
(www.sandstorm.com). They came out and talked to BayLISA (www.baylisa.org)
about this a short time ago, and while it isn't yet doing the line rates
talked about here, it was interesting. It's more about demultiplexing TCP
and decoding protocols without regard to the port number; sort of an
expert-system. (I saw it pluck out and display thumbnails of images from a
gzipped tar file that was FTPd on a high port, IIRC.)
I'd like to hear from the list as to what your preferred means of
determining what the hell is going on at a packet level at the other side
of a WAN/MAN/frame/etc link.
It's a FreeBSD box already built and already tuned. If I had the money,
I'd have bought one on the spot.
President of BayLISA, and nothing to do with Sandstorm.
