Free network protocol analyzer

Wireshark is a free network protocol analyzer that can capture network packets. IT technicians use it to solve network troubleshooting and traffic analysis. With Wireshark, you can break down a packet and use it for real-time or offline analysis and security. Unlike Essential Nettools, Wireshark is entirely free, and it's more customisable and user-friendly than Fing and Network Inventory Advisor.

With Wireshark, you can capture packets, filter data, and dive deep into the network with visualisation tools. Government agencies, educational institutions and businesses all use it to solve network issues.

Display

Wireshark is straightforward for people with IT knowledge. It will display information such as Source IP, Destination IP, time of the network event, length of the event, and info on the packet. All of these options are customisable, and you can change the display of the panels. You can also create profiles to switch quickly between presets depending on your needs.

Wireshark uses a colour code to indicate errors in the packets and a timeline on the right side of the screen to show the entire packet on a macro level.
