I was wandering are these two softwares the same? has one got any advantages over the other one? Which one do you use and why? I installed wireshark last night and i didnt have a clue on how to use it. Will be reading the tutorials on here when i get home. Also i noticed something else as well.. first i went to download etheral which was 12MB then i realised that its now called wireshark, then i went to download wireshark.. which was under 1MB... why the big difference?
