    I repeat:
    JPCap is an open source packet capture tool on Sourceforge. Have a look at it:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpcap

    packet sniffer

    Hello there,


    my problem is that i want to build a packet sniffer for windows by making use of programming language java where in i would be using jpcap and winpcap(winpcap is packet capture library for windows)

    now jpcap has some examples in it so can anybody give a stepwise procedure to build a packet sniffer
    like 1) what code should i write for setting the network interface card in promiscuous mode
    2)once that is done how do i make use of packet capture methods in jpcap
    3) should i make use of jcpdump

    to summarize i want source code of packet capturing and analysis


    I would be really greatful if anybody gives me the solution to this.

    Are you familiar with the Java Native Interface (JNI)? Given that and some sort of documentation for winpcap one would think it would be fairly straightforward. But then I wouldn't know.

    I got this from a Google search for "java winpcap", so maybe you've already seen it. But just in case...

    There is a winpcap FAQ, which says they "do not directly support java", but they also point to a wrapper, which sounds like they're doing exactly what you want.

    I don't know whether they supply source code, but they do show samples on their site.

    Just download it, unzip it and the source is in the JAR-files (JAR-files can be opened with a zip utility).

    Come on people, if you can't navigate the SourceForge website then writing a packet sniffer is the least of your worries.

    Goto this link that's been provided more than once:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpcap

    Click that great big green button that says "Download Network Packet Capture Facility for Java".

    Now look for the Type that says "Source". Windows users can download the gz file: "jpcap-0.01.16.tar.gz"

    The tools talked about in this thread will lead you to the capture utilities you will need (and which can be implemented in your Java program), and some analysis tools. Also look at Wireshark (formerly known as Ethereal) for its very accomplished analysis tools and at its website for tutorials for using it and the analysis of packets.
