LAN Analyzer in HP-UX

Hi!

I am looking for some sort of TEXT/ASCII LAN
analyzer tool for my HP-UX m/c. I had a similar
tool called "snoop" on Solaris.

Please let me know if there is something of that
sort available ASAP>

Thanks and Regards
Narender

Re: LAN Analyzer in HP-UX

The command you are looking for is nettl

man 1m nettl
nothing wrong with me that a few lines of code cannot fix!

Hi:

Look too, at 'nettladm'. Do a "man 1M nettladm". The nettladm command starts a menu-driven program that makes it easy to perform network tracing and logging tasks with only limited specialized knowledge of HP-UX. 'nettladm' is a self-guided tool, and context-sensitive help is available at any point by pressing the f1 function key.

Hi!

From the man it appears that nettl only captures
traffic to/from the HP-UX. I want all the traffic on
the lan be captured. Also, I want to be able to
view this trace in a text editor say vi, so that I can
copy and paste it to some other files.

Please confirm asap

Thanks and Regards

Re: LAN Analyzer in HP-UX

I think tcpdump is what you are looking for. You can get the binaries from the Software Porting Archive (eg. at http://hpux.asknet.de/)

Tcpdump is able to capture the whole networktraffik if your nic supports this.

Another tool is ethereal, which has a really nice gui and some extra funktions. You can get this also from the Porting Archive.

Hope this helps
