I don't know of a tray tool that can do that however it make be possible to convert the output of like ifconfig to show in a tray tool or in pwidgets if someone was willing to take the time.

PostPosted: Sun 01 May 2011, 17:06    Post subject: AngryIP  

One thing that MAY be helpful when a user installs AngryIP is a box that insure they understand that JAVA is required. That way, not so savvy users might not think it just doesn't work. I'm sure that there may be other ways of alerting the user such as the launch script checking before giving control to AngryIP.; etc.

And, if possible, could the package start off with the Alive host only preference setting.

As it is, though, this really is a great addition.

DPUP5520,
Can you briefly position Wireshark versus Kismet?

@ stiginge
I will post a pet of it later for you , I initially created a pet and sfs but didn't post the pet cause of the size and didn't take into consideration full installs.

@ Béèm
I really can't go into an in depth analysis of the two programs however i'd say one of the most major differences between the two is that Wireshark is capable of packet injection which Kismet is not. On the other hand Kismet is able to capture gps data with a plugin where Wireshark can't, I've seen many people ask why have Kismet and Wireshark both installed and the answer is simple, they both have different functions that they do better than the other, Kismet is mostly used for Wardriving/Network Decloaking, while Wireshark is geared more towards capturing live network data/data injection after gaining access to a network.

Edit: sorry Béèm I only now realized I wrote the above from a hacker's/intruder's point of view rather than a network admin or end user as you were probably asking for, for the most part they are both fine for monitoring traffic however if you are looking to use one as an IDS i'd say Kismet is the way to go, way easier to monitor.

I will rephrase my issue.
I experience loss of connection.
I have tried things like the stay-connected pet, as it often happens during a period of inactivity.

When I saw kismet and wireshark, I wonder which one of the two is best for tracking this issue.
Maybe neither of the two is suitable.

Hence the question.

The application doesn't launch from menu entries (under >internet and >system).

Entering the wireshark command in a console brings up an error message:

Code:
wireshark: error while loading shared libraries: libpcap.so.0.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Ah so verry sorry about that Béèm, I would reccomend using Kismet if you want to find out when the computer is disconnecting as you can set up a log/filter to track when a client connects and disconnects but it obviously would not be usefull for tracking specific issues with your connection. Wireshark wouldn't really be useful at all in a situation like this.

@stiginge

You are missing the libpcap library, I will add a fix to the first post tonight.

Thank you DPUP5520 for confirming my feeling that Kismet was more appropriate.
I'll concentrate on it.

PostPosted: Wed 18 May 2011, 18:35    Post subject: Kismet/Wreshark for monitor  

Asking for recommendation:
Most of the world uses router. Most of these router can be configured to direct messages of router activity to syslog, Somewhere.

With 2 tools discussed here; Kismet and Wireshark brings me to ask for help.

(from my iSP) I want to know when my Public IP is active and when my IP changes (for like most, I have dynamic account) from ISP.

Questions:
  • Which does anyone recommend for obtaining the Public IP information?
  • Is there a way to capture it into a file, simply?
Thanks in advance
P.S. You guidance here has been absolutely rewarding. Thanks for your contributions.
