  Here you have more traces captured with tcpdump and some software to use to have more friend format and to look graphically the traffic.
  for other tools like ethreal, it is a nice tool but treatment time of the data especially when analysing huge quantity of traffic is very long.
  tcptrace is a very good tool and you can read more about the existing modules, I think you'll find analysis that you need.
  for windows or Linux environment, it's better to use Linux since original versions of this tools was developped for Linux but still you can install cygwin under windows and use Linux programs there even with graphical interface
  what are you interested iin exactly ?
  Any questions are welcome,

Have you tried ethereal(multi platform protocol analyzer) for windows....

Tcptrace i known is a common tool to analyze network traffic and take as input dump files.

Do all records in the files have the same size in bytes? if so, what is the number of bytes? <p>      In addition, I want to read a record each time, but how to ju!
