    do you mean Raw not war? I am guessing so. Baisicly, its a socket that isn't associated with UDP or TCP, its just a "raw" ip socket.

    Also, I am going to put another vote in for Ethereal. Its basicly the BEST you can get esspecially since its Opensource. I use it all the time myself to help me diagnose problems on my little home network.

    netstumbler is a wireless network discovery tool. not a packet sniffer. but it is good at what it does.
