About the Webinar:

Packet sniffing can be used for troubleshooting, monitoring, and network statistics. There are many ways to do that, and in this webinar we’ll demonstrate how packet capturing can be done on Linux.

More specifically, we’ll show how to use tcpdump, one of the most popular and effective sniffing tool. It’s free and open source, and you can use it on most operating systems.

The most important skill in packet sniffing is being able to find the needle in the haystack. This is doable only by using the correct filters. Among others, we’ll cover filters that group traffic based on:

  • Interface

  • Type of traffic (tcp or udp)

  • Host (destination or source)

  • Port (destination or source)

The webinar will be a hands-on, live demonstration of tcpdump, so come prepared with a Linux prompt in order to follow along the way.
