There are three types of IP Sniffer utilities which include: WAP sniffer, WSN sniffer, and PSP sniffer for Windows. The WAP sniffer works with Windows by opening all packets of data for further analysis. The WAP sniffer works best with Windows 2021, Windows XP Home Edition, and Windows Vista. On the other hand, the WSN sniffer can work with any Windows version before they are completely deleted. PSP sniffer for Windows operates in the same way as the WAP sniffer, but it requires a separate PSP drivers to function properly. This tool is typically used by IT professionals for network security audits.
Each of the tools have various uses such as monitoring, port scanning, and protocol violations detection. The most powerful tool however is the IP Sniffer which is able to run as an invisible application which silently checks your entire network traffic. By simply clicking on the sniffer icon located on the taskbar or desktop while connected to the internet, it will start to log the captured packets. You will be able to see every command and every URL visited by the infected computer.
