    Sure, use snort www.snort.org

    It will most likely only capture your traffic though.

    Im assuming that if you sniff packets sent from your own network it would be legal, but outside of that i dont even have a clue as to what legal things there are on it.

    Btw: This post hasnt been responded to in two years for a reason.

    In the US, yes. They are legitimate network diagnostic tools.

    Yes, Status is correct. When you see the date blinking, consider the thread dead. Normally I don't respond to threads like this but since I can see that you (michael737n) are new, this is something that you'll need to know otherwise you'll be negged before long.

    Yes, ethereal is great..
    Just be careful where you use these sniffers though...
    For example if you were on broadband i don't think your provider would like you watching there packets speed by on their network...
