Hello All,

I have a tool I'm trying to test and I'm hoping that someone here can point me in the right direction.

What I need is a tool that will allow me to view whether or not the outbound urls and inbound data are reaching the program I'm trying to test, so I need to find a tool that will allow me to see the traffic going to and from a local machine via the internet.

Does anyone know of a tool that will allow me to view this traffic so I can see if the program is getting to a specific URL and if the response from the URL is returning properly to the program?

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks kc0tma,

I'll check it out. Hopefully they have a Windows version. I've used Ethereal on my FreeBSD box, but didn't realize that they actually have a version for the PC.

Thanks again!

They've got versions to cover pretty much any operating system and architecture there is, we use it pretty often at my office for the same thing you are using it for, pretty handy.
