Networking Blog 5

March 12, 2013

This week I learned about a program called Wireshark. It captures internet packet activity and provides information about what is sent and received while it is operating. There are different pieces of information provided depending on what activity you are doing. I looked at information sent and received when viewing/accessing a web page. The middle pane provided source and destination information including IP addresses. As to the other experiments using Wireshark, I didn’t do them yet because I don’t understand what the lab is asking me to do. I will do further research to understand what is being asked before I attempt to capture more data on Wireshark. None of the information really makes sense to me yet. I did search to see if I could find a classmate’s blog, but I was unable to locate any.
