trafshow+rvnamed combines trafshow (which is a good traffic viewer for networks but is weak in DNS resolving), and iptraf.
This directory contains trafshow source code, a tool for real-time network traffic visualization. Trafshow continuously display the information regarding packet traffic on the configured network interface that match the boolean expression. It periodically sorts and updates this information.
This funny program may be useful for locating suspicious network traffic on
the net or to evaluate current utilization of the network interface. If trafshow has been compiled with modern curses libraries such as Slang or Ncurses it been able to show colored traffic according to your configuration on color-capable terminal.
Trafshow can use variouse ncurses interfaces, a terminal-independent set of screen functions with optimal cursor motion. Trafshow now use libpcap, a system-independent interface for user-level packet capture. Before building trafshow, you must first retrieve and build libpcap, also from LBL, in:
Currently trafshow may be compiled with any curses library, but not all of them work with color functions properly. Slang or Ncurses is prefered because it right supports color. Note for termcap users, only the Slang curses is suitable for you. Before building trafshow, you must first retrieve and build one of the
following curses library:
Once libpcap and libslang is built and installed, you can build trafshow
using the procedure in the INSTALL file. The original distribution is available via anonymous ftp to ftp.nsk.su,
