Wireshark 1.4.6Posted on Tuesday, Apr 19 2011 @ 16:08 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Wireshark is the world's foremost network protocol analyzer. It lets you capture and interactively browse the traffic running on a computer network. It is the de facto (and often de jure) standard across many industries and educational institutions.
The following bugs have been fixed:
- Wireshark and TShark can crash while analyzing TCP packets. (Bug 5837)
Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from http://www.wireshark.org/download.html.
Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages. You can usually install or upgrade Wireshark using the package management system specific to that platform. A list of third-party packages can be found on the download page on the Wireshark web site.
Wireshark and TShark look in several different locations for preference files, plugins, SNMP MIBS, and RADIUS dictionaries. These locations vary from platform to platform. You can use About->Folders to find the default locations on your system.
Wireshark might make your system disassociate from a wireless network on OS X 10.4. (Bug 1315)
