Wireshark is the usual way to go:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Gtk/Applications/wireshark-1.4.5/

Note you also have to install _all_ the runtime dependencies listed there too.

Alternatively, if you are in to doing everything from the command line, you can use the built-in system on HP-UX, which is the nettl (network tracing and logging) subsystem. See the following man pages:

nettl(1M) - control network tracing and logging
nettladm(1M) - network tracing and logging administration manager
nettlconf(1M) - configure network tracing and logging command subsystem database
nettlgen.conf(4) - network tracing and logging configuration file

Re: Install tcpdump for hp-ux rx 6600

etherreal can read nettl traces.

so get a nettl trace

nettl -tn all -e .... -e .... -f /var/tmp/res
-m size -tm tmsize.

... are the subsystems you want to trace
nettl -ss to have the complete list
NS_LS_IP -> IP layer
NS_LS_TCP -> TCP layer
IGELAN -> igelan interface
GELAN -> gelan interface
....

size if only the headers is of interest for you, and not the content you can limit the packet lost in trace limiting the size.
tmsize, is the max size used by the 2 trace files.

rx incidactes Itanium, while rp stands for a machine of PARISC platform. you will need two separate binaries because these are two distinct platforms.

Anyway, it's not called ethereal anymore. It is now called wireshark. It is the same program with a different name. To download see the link Duncan gave you.

Well, one *can* run a PA-RISC binary on an Integrity system via ARIES emulation, but indeed it is better to have a native Itanium binary.

The depothelper utility from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ can be quite helpful when downloading dependencies.
