As a packet sniffer, Capsa is able to capture all network packets transmitted on network and displays detailed packet decoding information in Hex, ASCII and EBCDIC. This page will describe how to view packet decoding information in Capsa' s "Packets" View.
Packet is the smallest unit in network transmission and packets don't lie to you. It will tell you all about the purpose of the packet, source and destination, content and more. Packet decoding information lets you look through the packets themselves, which is very useful in troubleshooting your network to track down security vulnerability or learning more knowledge about protocols and network services.
The packet list table offers the list of packets captured from the node selected in the Node Explorer window and the general information of each packet.
When selecting a packet item from the packet list, the packet decoding information will be displayed under in Hex, ASCII and EBCDIC.
