Wiretap, part of the Wireshark project, is a library that allows one to read and write several packet capture file formats.

Supported formats are: * Libpcap * Sniffer * LANalyzer * Network Monitor * "snoop" * "iptrace" * Sniffer Basic (NetXRay)/Windows Sniffer Pro * RADCOM WAN/LAN Analyzers * Lucent/Ascend access products * HP-UX nettl * Toshiba ISDN Router * ISDN4BSD "i4btrace" utility * Cisco Secure Intrustion Detection System iplogging facility * pppd logs (pppdump-format files) * VMS TCPTRACE * DBS Etherwatch (text format) * Catapult DCT2000 (.out files)

Wiretap's shortcomings are: no filter capability and no support for packet capture.

Package version:1.6.7-1
