    Yeps - used them all at some point, use seven of them every day. I'd use Wireshark over TCPDump in most situations, John is a pretty old password cracker - most cracking nowadays is done using rainbow tables passed through Cain and 'Fake AP' is a little bit too 'aggressive' to be considered anything more than an active tool (not something that would be in most security toolkits - you'd usually use it as part of a wireless honeynet)

    Nessus is awesome - I'd put it up there with MetaSploit as the most mind-boggling tool I've ever used, and NMap is, as far as I'm concerned, the daddy of all open source tools.
